From my inbox:
[My wife] has now received two letters from Mitt Romney asking her for
money, one at our [previous state’s] address and one at our new [state’s]
address. One letter started with “Dear Republican voter.”
The problem with this is that [my wife] never registered as a Republican
anywhere, and registered as a Democrat in [old state] and [new state].
She’s never given any money to the Republicans–though she has to the
Democrats and the Greens. She has never voted for a Republican for
president, though she has voted for a few down ballot. Where did Mitt get
her name? Two options, one unsavory, the other downright awful. It’s
either BYU alumni records–and it’s a safe bet to think that those people
are Republicans–or it’s Church records. I really, really hope it’s
not the second.
Is my friend’s wife an aberration?
