The White House has confirmed it hired a Minnesota-based company, GovDelivery, to send thousands of emails about the Obama administration’s health-care agenda. The problem: Emails were sent to many people who didn’t request the information.
David Axelrod, a polticial adviser to President Obama, wrote the email to clear up confusion about the health-care plan and to promote a White House website about the plan.
Several other government agencies have hired Govdelivery in the past, including the FBI and IRS.
