Pretty tacky. ABC news online is now reporting that it has been removed from the events. Somebody checked their zip code which is how they found it, LA area.
“Other than doing an occasional “very cursory” review of the site to make sure there are no “glaringly inappropriate” events on it, the Presidential Inaugural Committee is “not vetting the groups that are offering service opportunities or the individuals that are offering service opportunities or the people who want to participate,” according to Linda Douglass, the committee’s chief spokesperson. “
Well, in that case, FR should post FR events there. Seriously.
