I have been working at home today, completely focused on a May 1 deadline, but was just made aware of the controversy regarding Women's Voices. Women Vote. (Disclosure: I am on their board.) I called Page Gardner and have had a quick conversation with her as well as seen the statement that she released. I am completely confident that this was an accident. As far as I can tell, I think it was more a consequence of trying to move on 24 states in a short amount of time, and having nothing to do with the upcoming primary.
I have known Page Gardner for 16 years. She has dedicated her life to trying to get folks to register to vote, and would never do anything to deter anyone from voting.
I am still gathering facts, as to what happened and as to what the exact sequence of events was. As soon as I know more details I will do another post on what I learn.
In the meantime, I think that it's entirely possible that busy folks were a little bit asleep at the switch in this situation, but I really don't think there was any bad intent here.
