In statements, both campaigns emphasized their dedication to voters’ privacy.

“We are committed to protecting individual privacy at every turn — adhering to industry best practices on privacy and going above and beyond what’s required by law,” said Adam Fetcher, an Obama campaign spokesman.

Ryan Williams, a spokesman for the Romney campaign, said: “The Romney campaign respects the privacy rights of all Americans. We are committed to ensuring that all of our voter outreach is governed by the highest ethical standards.”

BWAHAHAHAHAAHAHA~!

Ethical? Standards? Dedication to privacy? (By using covertly gleaned private information?)

These kinds of lies are only topped by the candidates themselves~! :P
