In an earlier post, I linked to a story and posted a picture of an endorsement letter in a South Dakota AG’s race where former FEC Commissioner Lee Goodman is identified as the “Chairman” of the FEC.
Former Commissioner Goodman reached out to say: “I’m sending you two emails clarifying the facts and request that you clarify I did not approve or authorize the envelope or its identification of me as ‘Chairman.'”
I have reprinted the two letters he sent me below the fold:
Letter from David A. Warrington:
Lee Goodman signed a letter endorsing Senator Lance Russell for Attorney General of South Dakota. The letter was paid for and mailed by the Russell campaign. Mr. Goodman did not approve the envelope or authorize the campaign to identify him as “Chairman” of the Federal Election Commission in any part of the letter. Mr. Goodman authorized the campaign to identify him only as “Former Chairman” of the Federal Election Commission.
Lance S. Russell
Candidate for SD Attorney General
[Note: an earlier version of this post erroneously called the Goodman letter a “fundraising” letter.]
