Report: Obama Campaign Impersonating Election OfficialsPosted: October 3, 2012
A new report in the Tampa Bay Times suggests that Obama campaign staffers are impersonating election officials. The broader allegation is that Obama staffers are misleading voters.
The report states: “This issue arose a day after Corley took a complaint from a voter about an OFA volunteer who initially said he worked for the elections office. The man told the voter there was a problem with her voter registration status, though officials confirmed her registration is fine.”
Obama campaign officials tell the paper “the call refers to a program where voters can request an absentee ballot at the elections office and fill it out on the spot,” the paper paraphrases.
