Former Clinton advisor Dick Morris blasted a statement by White House officials that they are not intentionally blocking e-mails originating from his new Web site, Vote.com. "The White House is lying," Morris said in an interview. "They're letting through e-mails at a rate of 70 per hour, and we're sending them at the rate of 416 per hour. The e-mails we're sending are about the FAA and safety -- and they called those e-mails vicious spamming. Would they say a letter is a spam?" Earlier Thursday, a spokesman said the White House's servers normally slow down the receipt of blocs of e-mails in order to protect the system against being overwhelmed. -- Charles Cooper, ZDNet News
