I get the campaigns are large organizations made up of humans who make mistakes. So when I heard that a robocall into Florida from Obama’s campaign gave some people the wrong dates for voting, I gave the benefit of the doubt that it was merely a mistake when recording.
However, now there are reports that not only is the robocalling giving out false dates to votes, but an Obama door-to-door campaign targeting seniors in a county that went Republican is also giving out the false dates, I’m not so sure this is an accident.
As someone who has done my fair share of campaigning, I have never felt the need to resort to lying to supporters of my opponents. I don’t actively encourage them to get out and vote, but I won’t give them false information in hopes of confusing them so they aren’t allowed to cast a ballot.
