From a January 18 WorldNetDaily article:
Fund initially told a crowd in November 2009 at a David Horowitz Freedom Center forum that Schumer, D-N.Y., and Frank, D-Mass., would be the architects of the universal-voter legislation.
"We read that on some right-wing websites, but we're not sure what they're talking about," Frank's spokesman told WND. "We haven't heard anything about it. We know it started with the Journal's John Fund, but we don't know anything about it, honestly. We're not sure where he got it from."
However, Fund corrected himself when he spoke with WND.
"I made an error. I should have referred to John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee," Fund said. "It's not Congressman Frank. It's Congressman Conyers."
