New info. on Republican Outsourcing: RNC Lies
The story of Republican Party outsourcing campaign operations to India originated in an Indian “Business Standard” article dated 1/30/03. The Business Standard link is dead, but the article has been mirrored on the Free Republic.
The RNC officially denied the allegations, and issued a cease and desist letter, which probably accounts for the missing Business Standard article. It too is available at Free Republic.
The story resurfaces with the Hindustan Times article of May 16, 2004. The Hindustan Times article claims that 125 Indians were calling for the RNC between May 16, 2002 and July 22, 2003, using an RNC call list, immediately prior to the RNC’s misleading legal threat.
The Asia Times ran perhaps the best article on the subject on May 19th. It appears to independently verify the Hindustan Times Piece.
The conclusion: the RNC sent a cease-and-desist letter to the media that was deliberately based on lies.
