WASHINGTON (AP) - A volunteer Iowa county coordinator for Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign has resigned after forwarding a chain e-mail that suggests Barack Obama is a Muslim who wants to destroy the United States by being elected to its highest office.
Obama is a member of the United Church of Christ and has never been a Muslim.
A hoax e-mail that has been widely circulated suggests Obama is some sort of Manchurian candidate for Muslims.
Judy Rose, a Clinton coordinator and Democratic Party official in Jones County, Iowa, forwarded it without comment to eight people on Nov. 21. Rose referred requests for comment to one of the recipients, Grace Zimmerman, who serves with her on the Jones County Democratic Central Committee.
Zimmerman said Wednesday that Rose sent it to the members of the committee to "show people how dirty politics is" and did not agree with the content of the e-mail.
"Oh heavens no," Zimmerman said in a telephone interview. "She just wanted the people who were concerned with the politics of Jones County to be aware of it."
Zimmerman said the Clinton campaign never talked to Rose about why she sent it but simply demanded her resignation after another one of the recipients decried the e-mail in a post on the liberal blog Daily Kos.
"There is no place in our campaign, or any campaign, for this kind of politics," Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle said in a statement Wednesday. "A volunteer county coordinator made the mistake of forwarding an outrageous and offensive chain e-mail. This was wholly unauthorized and we were totally unaware of it."
According to a release on the Clinton campaign Web site, Rose is from Anamosa, Iowa, and served on Clinton's Women's Leadership Council.
The Obama campaign declined to comment on her resignation.
The e-mail that Rose forwarded points out that Obama's father and stepfather were Muslim and that Obama lived in Indonesia for part of his childhood. But other parts of the e-mail are false - Obama attended public and Catholic schools in Indonesia, not a radical Islamic school. It is also not true that Obama used the Quran instead of the Bible when sworn into office or that he ever "admitted" to being a Muslim.
Eight people? That's one hell of a chain letter.
Okay, so he's not a Muslim, he's an Apostate.
How does one go to a Islamic school and not become a Muslim? Muslims treat infidels differently than other Muslims. Even if he doesn’t consider himself a Musilm, you can bet that the Muslims do.
To state that he “has never been a Muslim” or that he isn’t even one now, is BS. It’s something only he knows.
I highly doubt it was one of those eight people who ratted her out. It was probably one of the many hundreds or thousands that it was ultimately forwarded to. You can usually find out who the email has come to you through.
Bigger rumors have started with a lot fewer than eight people... Clinton is sooooooooo Nixonian and Clintonian at the same time. How on earth can anyone vote for her?
Depends on who those ‘8’ people are.
If one of them is the owner of DAILY KOS, then imagine.....
It does tell us one very important thing.
There are EIGHT websites that HRC and Staff are using to throw mud with, on the internet.
So, who are the other 7 ?
"We got caught", Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle said in a statement Wednesday.
There. Fixed it.
Questions remain. Which is why the boy (is one allowed to say the word “boy”?) should be the RAT nominee! All the 12 million Catholic illegals from Latin America are going to switch and vote for a Pubbie.
Yea,,reckon I need to check my mail..
Well, Hillary is an atheist and wants to destroy the country. Big deal.
Why on Earth do you find it acceptable to do to Obama? What has Obama actually done that would warrant such a comparison?
Some say the only "Apostate" Muslims are dead Muslims.
That said, Obama is touting that he only attended the Muslim school in Jakata until age 10. (He still continued to be raised in a Muslim household)
I lived with my beloved grandparents back in the 1930-40's. I went to a little story-book one-room school,
I left at age ten
I'm now a great grandmother - but I still write my nostalgia column of 20 years now...and guess what it's about?
It's about my "formative years" = the years when most of my values and beliefs were formed - by the examples of my grandparents and by my teacher.
Obama even attended a Catholic school, where he was listed as a Muslim.
Rather than refer to Hillary! as an atheist, I see her as
an alinskyist. Obama should retaliate by having some staffer forward a Hillary!-Alinsky-thesis memo to 8 people, and then watch the fireworks...
Obamas bed is turned toward Mecca
See my posts #’s 6 & 9 on this thread -
Did someone say “Mata Hari”?
By Islamic law - being born to a Muslim father MADE him a Muslim..
If in fact he has renounced Islam, and converted to some non Islamic religion -- then he is subject to execution under Sharia law....
ONLY Obama can tell us if he is Muslim or not Muslim.....but all Muslims are taught they can say ANYTHING for their own safety in the furtherance of Islam -- so it would be expected an at risk Muslim would certainly LIE, making the question and answer worthless.
Why would America, at this time -- even consider the risk and danger in electing this unknown, unproven, naive, inexperienced and certainly unremarkable person?
Because Oprah likes him. I’m afraid it’s that simple. Really afraid.
