More on ASA's emails

by folkbum

Dan Bice has the story in this morning's paper, and he does give credit to the anonymous blogger for uncovering the Yahoo! group Advocates for Student Achievement was using to plot is strategy. Bice got a hold of more of them than I could before the group was shut down. I don't have much to add, except to comment on this, from ReDonna Rodgers, who is running against Peter Blewett in next week's election:
Keith Bailey, a spokesman for Rodgers' campaign, said the candidate hadn't received anything from ASA other than what she picked up from its orientation sessions, which he said were open to anyone.
But as Bice notes, and as I highlighted last week, the group seems to have done some paperwork for her:

Look forward to seeing most of you tomorrow at 7:45 at Highland Park Pies. In the meantime, thought you might want to see the final version (at least for now) of ReDonna’s platform. This piece is being used with potential donors and others who want a better understanding of where she’s coming from.

Attached is a revised document. Only change is that it includes the proper disclaimer at the back.

Doesn't that sound to you like Curley was preparing the document, or at least had access to edit the document to add the "disclaimer"? I'm not an elections lawyer, so I'll leave that all to others. But it sounds suspicious to me.
