    The Obama presidential campaign is launching an effort to collect Republican email addresses by inviting its supporters to submit information about their Republican associates to the Obama 2012 website.

    The effort could help the Obama campaign build a database that would enable it to target Republican voters during the general election campaign. But, more perniciously, it could also become part of an Democratic effort to influence Republican primary voters to select a candidate Democrats think Obama could most easily defeat.

    I wonder how he feels about being reported as spam?

    This is gonna go the same way as Attackwatch.

    Dear Friend

    Thank you for inspiring me to donate also. We should all support the candidate of our choice. Because of your generosity I have not only sent as much as I could to Newt Gingrich, but will do so on a regular basis.

    All Statists/Progressives do without exception. They are never honest of who they are, what they belive, or thier intent.

    It's pretty crass, but I doubt that it will be used to attack the Republicans (other than the initial emails). Generally, when campaigns launch a dirty tricks campaign, they don't do it publicly with their candidate's name on it.

    I don't view it as a trick. In this day and age, does anyone not expect to get spam from a site like that?

    Give your email, get spam. Internet rule #132.

    Yes, but "You" are not giving your email. he's asking your friends and acquaintances to give "your" email to his organization.
