Fox News correspondent Major Garrett said he’d heard reports of people receiving the email, even though they hadn’t signed up for the White House email list. Garrett also said they hadn’t signed up to receive emails from Organizing for America, President Obama’s political group.
Press Secretary Robert Gibbs cut him off, saying the OFA has nothing to do with White House emails.
“I want you to rephrase your question that doesn’t continue to assume that someone’s violating the law,” Gibbs said. Garrett repeated the question, this time replacing “OFA” with “Senator Obama as a candidate” — still implying an illegal act.
