5. At 2:00 PM on Friday, September 28, at the RNC, I received an unsolicited phone call from Gerald Hebert asking me if I ?had been involved in Florida redistricting?. I asked him what he meant by ?involved?. He then explained that he had been ?tasked? to ?nd people who were involved in Florida redistricting for the ongoing redistricting litigation in that state. When I hesitated, he said that ?you don?t have to answer, if you don?t want to.? I said that I did not want to comment further and that I would contact counsel on this issue. We exchanged a few pleasantries and then terminated the conversation. 6. To the best of my recollection, I have not been in contact, or exchanged data or maps, with any Florida legislators or members of their staffs, concerning Florida redistricting, since the release of the Census Bureau?s 2010 Decennial Redistricting Data File in early 2011.
