Obama National Catholic Advisory Committee member Sharon Daly emailed God-o-Meter to affirm the board’s ongoing activities:

Just in the last week, I’ve participated in two more of Senator Obama’s National Catholic Advisory Council conference calls: a weekly call on policy and another weekly strategy session. In addition, all of us are continuing our outreach to fellow Catholic Obama supporters across the country.
If the Campaign disbanded our group of hard working council members, they forgot to tell us.
