According to the logs, 8 OFA/DNC professional operatives were at the meeting. They were Lucas Fleischer, “DNC Creative Director;” William Gordon, “DNC Online Tools Manager;” David Grossman, a “Rapid Response Video Producer;” Tiina Knuutila, “Senior Video Producer for the New Media Team at DNC/OFA;” Jessica Livoti, “Online Activist Manager, OFA/DNC;” Matthew Lubin, “Media Administrator, DNC;” Reed Petty, “DNC Media Center Director;” and Brad Schenck, a “Region Field Director” for Organizing for America.
No names of common-folk volunteers could be found.
According to the logs, the “caller” or point person was Tara Corrigan, executive assistant to then-Political Director Patrick Gaspard. Gaspard has since left to be the Executive Director of the DNC.
Does it matter that the supposed OFA “volunteers” were actually operatives for a political party, or that inaccurate details were given to Politico?
Is this just one of those unspoken-yet-routine occurrences? The same DC insider told me the White House is not used for this purpose.
While this doesn’t rise to the level of Bill Clinton’s coffees, overnights and other fundraising activities in the White House, it should give cause for concern that the White House is being used for inappropriate political party events.
