Yesterday reporter Glynis Kazanjian at the Maryland Reporter told us more about the mystery phone call received in Maryland’s Sixth District which targeted Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (I reported it here a couple of weeks ago.)
And, now we learn there was also a MoveOn.org (Soros group) press release with a similar message, this time targeting the other Democrat in the Democrat primary race with Rob Garagiola (clearly the boy the Democrat establishment in Maryland is backing).
One week after the robocalls were made in Western Maryland, MoveOn.org – an organization that recently endorsed Sen. Rob Garagiola in the 6th District race – issued a press release with a similar message, urging opponent John Delaney to speak out against Georgetown University’s “restrictive policy on contraception.”
MoveOn claims they have no knowledge of who did the robocall in the 6th District—-sure we believe that.
MoveOn.org and the Garagiola campaign denied they were behind the robocalls.
“We are 100 percent sure it’s not coming from MoveOn,” said MoveOn.org spokesman Michael Uehlein.
“I first read about these robocalls running in Ohio from the Drudge Report,” said Garagiola Campaign Manager Sean Rankin. “All we know about them is what’s in the press.”
The robocall efforts and the MoveOn.org press release indicate that women are being targeted in swing districts nationwide.
There is more, read the whole Maryland Reporter piece. Reporter Kazanjian has also gathered some interesting stats about how many women voters there are in parts of the new 6th District.
