Clinton Campaign Accuses Obama of Dirty Tricks

In an e-mail to supporters, Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle accuses Barack Obama's campaign of "dirty campaign tactics."

Doyle writes:

"I wanted to let you know immediately about reports our campaign has received about possible dirty campaign tactics in Iowa and New Hampshire -- and ask for your help.

In Iowa, we have heard reports that Hillary supporters are getting calls that tell them incorrect caucus locations. Supporters have also told us about push polls -- when they tell the pollster they support Hillary, they are given negative talking points about her and asked which attacks are the most effective.

In both Iowa and New Hampshire, we have heard that Obama staffers are berating Hillary supporters on the phone with negative attacks against her.

And here is a report from New Hampshire:

When my father informed them that he was supporting Hillary they proceeded to talk to him about her failure to reform health care when she was First Lady. He said it sounded like they were reading something that was already prepared.

These reports are invaluable to our campaign! It is vitally important that we know about any unethical tactics our opponents may use. And as one of our best supporters in New Hampshire, you are in the best position to keep us informed. If you or any of your family, friends, or neighbors receive negative push poll calls or any misleading information about the election, please contact our New Hampshire headquarters immediately to let them know. Here is contact information:

New Hampshire for Hillary
Phone: 603-782-4640

Thank you for helping us make sure this election is a fair one, and for everything you do for Hillary.
