EAC: Tova Wang is Free to Speak, Documents Disclosed to Congress PDF  | Print |  Email

The EAC has replied to Tova Wang's attorney, and states that she is free to speak to Congress about her work on the Voter Fraud and Voter Intimidation Project. In a letter dated July 5, EAC deputy counsel Gavin Gilmour wrote to Wang's lawyer, James Joseph, that Wang's "only limitation is in speaking for the EAC or in releasing nonpublic information."


An exchange of letters between the EAC and Wang's counsel last month had left Wang's freedom to speak unclear (see previous article). The EAC's Gilmour wrote that Wang could not speak on behalf of the agency, and that the Commission had publicly released all documents pertaining to the study that it had also provided to members of Congress.


Joseph replied, asking about the meaning of that statement, and requesting confirmation that it meant that the EAC had not "selectively provided certain documents to the [Senate Rules and Administration] Committee, while holding back other relevant materials without providing a privilege log describing the documents withheld." In his latest letter, EAC attorney Gilmour reaffirmed that the EAC has "publicly released its documents pertaining to the development of the voter fraud report" and asked if Wang is in possession of documents that have not been released publicly or provided to Congress. "The EAC wants all such documents available for public scrutiny; I imagine that Ms. Wang would agree."


If Wang is unsure of a specific request for information, Gilmour said, she should consult her former supervisor at the EAC.
