From the AP via Fox News:
DES MOINES, Iowa â€” Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign on Sunday requested the resignation of a second Iowa volunteer coordinator who forwarded a hoax e-mail saying Barack Obama is a Muslim possibly intent on destroying the United States.
Obama is a member of the United Church of Christ and says he has never been a Muslim, but false rumors attempting to tie him to Islamic jihadists are circulating on the Internet.
“Let us all remain alert concerning Obama’s expected presidential Candidacy,” read the e-mail. “Please forward to everyone you know. The Muslims have said they Plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at The highest level.”
The Clinton campaign has decried the rumors as offensive and outrageous, and last week forced volunteer Jones County coordinator Judy Rose to resign after learning that she forwarded a such an e-mail on Nov. 21. But it turns out Rose wasn’t the only one.
Linda Olson, a volunteer coordinator in Iowa County, had forwarded a similar version on Oct. 5, without comment, to 11 people. One of the recipients was Ben Young, a regional field director for Democrat Chris Dodd’s campaign, who provided a copy to The Associated Press on Sunday.
Seems to be a regular issue for the Clinton campaign. From insinuations to Obama having a hidden secret from his past, to questioning his religious beliefs….. This is exactly what I talked about in a previous story regarding Clinton tactics and the overall negativity continually generated around her whole campaign.
Come primary time she’s going to have some serious problems…at least that’s my prediction.
Anybody remember Senator Clinton’s little speech on the Democrats being on a united front, and that they weren’t going to fight with each other? It’s been the exact opposite. http://hillaryattacks.barackobama.com/ Some pretty interesting stuff there.
As a matter of fact I have written, in a previous post,Â that Hillary had an elementary school type approach with her behavior, and that she comes off childish. As it turns out I wasn’t wrong as some of her supporters who commented on that post seemed to have thought.
And Obama’s response to Hillary’s camp digging around in his school files when questioning a kindergarten and 2nd grade “What I want to be when I grow up” report:
I may be ambitious, but at least I donâ€™t dig for dirt in my opponentsâ€™ elementary school files.
