Local Dems Report Misleading Robocalls
Reports on the Oakland County Democrats' Facebook page say callers from out-of-state give incorrect polling and candidate endorsement information.
Oakland County Democrats report tonight that they're getting "robocalls" with wildly inaccurate election information from people who claim to represent the Obama for America campaign and their own party.
On the party's Facebook page, Birmingham resident Nancy Skinner posted a video she shared on YouTube.com with a caller saying that her polling place is the First Baptist Haitian Church, which doesn't exist in Birmingham.
Patch has confirmed that the phone number mentioned in the call belongs to an Obama for America field office and has contacted the campaign to determine whether the calls actually came from Obama for America.
Others who posted said they received calls from Seattle, WA claiming that Oakland County Democrats are supporting Republican Party-endorsed judicial candidates Dan Christ and Brian Zahara.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned to Northville Patch for updates.
