TPMmuckraker’s Paul Kiel has been on the phone digging into this story of an apparent voter-suppression effort down in North Carolina. Paul spoke to the spokeswoman for Women’s Voices Women Vote, the group behind the calls. And you can see what he came up with here.

According to WVWV, it’s basically just a misunderstanding. But we didn’t get any good explanation as to why the calls did not identify the group placing them or why the calls identified themselves as coming from a “Lamont Williams.” (Hear the call here.) At the moment, it’s unclear whether such a person even exists, but the group’s spokesperson said there is no person with that name affiliated with the group and could provide no other information.
