Think Progress Responds to GAB Spokesperson on WI Voter ID Story

Now following up on GAB Responds to Think Progress on WI Voter ID Funding Question, Think Progress sends along the following response:

Last Wednesday, as part of our ongoing coverage of voting rights across the country, our reporter attended the GAB’s voter ID workshop in Milwaukee and took careful notes. She was the only reporter present. Mr. Magney was not present, but insists we misquoted his colleague, writing, “Meagan would not have made that statement.” He first demanded that we pull the entire article, then pressured us to change the quotes.


It’s very possible that Ms. Wolfe misspoke, but we stand by our reporting.


We have offered to add an additional statement from the GAB in the piece but did not receive one.
