VERUM SERUM does it again by uncovering the details of this story. In a Q&A on GOVDELIVERY'S WEBSITE, the president of GD makes the following claim:

Well based on this administration's track record, do you really have to ask that question?
Nonetheless, VS continues following the trail. GovDelivery's president further explains GovDelivery's role in the mass mailing of its clients' information:
GovDelivery allows clients to upload existing contact lists into GovDelivery.So does this mean that the White House would have necessarily had to have issued those email address to GovDelivery instead of GovDelivery harvesting them like the White House claimed last week after finding itself in a pickle?
Be sure to read Verum Serum's ENTIRE ANALYSIS. It points to a very radioactive pickle that the White House tried to give to GovDelivery to deal with.
