From The Hill:
Obama's campaign website now offers donors a chance to enter the name and email of "a Republican in your life" that will be used to "send them a message letting them know they inspired you to donate."

Ben LaBolt, the Obama campaign's press secretary, tweeted later on Wednesday that "the email addresses are not stored."

Not buying it.

Those email addresses will be right there in the "sent mail" folder, along with the email addresses of every recipient of an email from the campaign.

And they're quite possibly sortable by subject line - they just need to do a search for "your slimy liberal 'friend' fingered you" [or however they finally decide to phrase it].

If Ben LaBolt had said they didn't specifically tuck those email addresses away in a separate database, I'd believe that, but that's not what he said.

Thus the title of this post.

  1. I wouldn't believe anything they said.

    When they say they aren't keeping them, they just mean they will deny having them at some future point and will stonewall FOI requests and congressional subpoenas.
