29. The full article didn't say much else so here's what I wrote the reporter:
David,

I saw a reference to your story on a web-site I frequent and downloaded the story. I am tracking down these stories as I hear about them. I have four sets of questions for you:

1) How were you made aware of the problems that Laurie Edwards' mother, Liz Odom, had with voting? Did either of these voters contact you? Do you know whether either or both are active in the Republican party on the local level? Was Bill Wright aware of their experience?

2) Did Bill Wright offer you any other names of voters who had experienced the same event (vote-flipping to Obama)? Have any of these aggrieved voters reported their experiences to the local election officials? (From reading your article, it appears not.)

3) Are you aware of any emails or other memos being circulated among Republicans in North Carolina encouraging these reports? (We have had such a memo circulated statewide in Tennessee.)

4) Can you tell me something about your paper: circulation, daily/weekly, editorial direction, etc?

Thanks for your help with this information. If you write anything else on this story, please let me know.
