2008 Robo Calls Were From Obama Campaign, Not Clinton.

Hey, false alarm on the dirty tricks.
I called Meyer Associates, the robo-call firm in Minnesota.
Spokesperson Melony Sik tells me Meyer was in fact hired by Obama.
It was a mess up there and not a Clinton dirty trick. “We got the date wrong. We’re aware of it.”
Sik couldn’t tell me how many screwy calls went out, but says their call list was in the thousands. She says correction calls are going out now.
I called the Obama campaign and they said they were aware of Meyer’s screw up. They guessed that Meyer’s script confused the Washington caucus (Saturday the 9th) and Maine’s caucus…which is Sunday, the 10th.
