LAWFUEL – The man behind the Hillary Clinton YouTube ad has been revealed as being someone who worked on the design of Barack Obama’s website.
Philip de Vellis is a 33 year old strategist with a Washington company that provides consultancy advice to Democratic candidates and others.
Blue State designed Obama’s Web site, and Associated Press reported that one of the firm’s founding members, Joe Rospars, took a leave from the company to work as Obama’s director of new media.
Obama, Blue State and de Vellis all say de Vellis acted on his own. De Vellis left the company on Wednesday. He said he resigned; Thomas Gensemer, the firm’s managing director, said he was fired.
