White House...Yeah We Did Hire An Outside Company To Send Out Emails By David "AstroTurf" Axelrod *

News so damning that the Friday afternoon dump wasn't good enough.

The White House hired a private communications company based in Minnesota to distribute mass e-mails, helping to shed light on how some recipients received e-mails in support of President Obama's health care plan without signing up for them, FOX News has learned.

The company, Govdelivery, describes itself as the world's leading provider of government-to-citizen communication solutions and says its e-mail service provides a fully-automated on-demand public communication system.

It is still unknown how much taxpayer money the White House provides to Govdelivery for its services.

Now the company they hire has other government contracts but this is spending public money to fund a political message. Yes, the line can be thin sometimes but Obama is taking it to a whole new level. Change! indeed.


*I changed the headline because I don't think the company really qualifies as a "Spammer". The White House gave them the emails, it's not Govdelivery's fault some of them were unsolicited.
