Update to Previous Post on Catholics in Alliance

OSV Daily Take corrects their story commented on in my previous post:

Because of a misunderstanding during OSV contributing editor Valerie Schmalz' phone interview with the executive director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Our Sunday Visitor in a sidebar in the March 8 edition incorrectly identified former Vatican Ambassador Thomas Melady as a board member of the group. In fact, Melady is on the group's advisory council. This information is readily available on the website of Catholics in Alliance.

Well, that's why I thought it was strange and commented on it. As reported here earlier, the board of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good is dominated by supporters of the Obama campaign and it seems that OSV was incorrect in reporting that CACG's Executive Director said otherwise. My apologies for passing along the apparently misreported quote.
