Bachmann Campaign Accused Of Stealing Homeschooler Email List

Posted by | December 1, 2011 09:15 | Filed under: Top Stories

The Network of Iowa Christian Educators says Michele Bachmann’s campaign uploaded the group’s email list for use by the campaign without the group’s permission.

Barb Heki, a NICHE board member who oversees the public relations communications efforts for the group, is also a paid employee of Bachmann’s Iowa campaign.

The group’s president, Justin LeVan, has sent an email to the group explaining the situation:

I want to apologize on behalf of the NICHE Board and advise you that we discovered that our list of homeschool contacts was uploaded without our knowledge or permission by the Michele Bachmann Campaign and used twice for e-mails from her campaign. We have been assured by the Bachmann Campaign that it was inadvertent. Due to safeguards built into our contact list, we immediately recognized the use. That same day NICHE contacted the Bachmann Campaign and instructed them to cease any further use of the NICHE list, to which they immediately took the necessary corrective actions to correct the situation.
