This is interesting as an explanatory glimpse behind the NDI curtain.  CAVO
advisory  board member Alec Bash and I met with NDI months back to give
them CAVO info.  They mentioned they had no interest in US elections but
appreciated our work.   Now silence.

It looks as though the OSET open wash crew has managed entry ( via Google )
here. Hopefully you can push further--  Please post further regarding best
methods of assistance.

Oh the webs..
