Desperate Campaign Resorts to Dishonest Robocalls

Democrats now have "Joe Sellers the Plumber" making calls on behalf of Obama.

Well, look! He is a plumber, and he is named Joe. Perfectly accurate to refer to him as Joe the Plumber, right?

Thanks to CJ.

And in Colorado: Joe Martinez the Plumber: A reader tips:

Just saw this over at the Puffington Host....

O is trying to confuse the voters on who Joe the Plumber is. He has his own JtP (some guy in Co) and is putting out robocalls....

Barack Obama's campaign is trotting out its own "Joe the Plumber" to counteract efforts by John McCain to make inroads on the white working class vote.

A reader in Colorado sends over word that the state Democratic Party and the Obama camp are blasting out robocalls from "Joe Martinez," a plumber in Colorado who vouches for the Illinois Democrat's tax plan.

A spokesman for the Colorado Democratic Party confirmed the robocall and said he would try to track down audio. The rough script goes like this:
"...During this week's debate, Barack Obama talked about cutting taxes for middle class families like mine, lowering health care costs for everyone and bringing the change we need in Washington. John McCain ignored the issues and used the debate to launch false attacks against Barack Obama. In fact, McCain - for the third debate in a row - didn't even say the words 'middle class'. So, take it from Joe the plumber, if you want a president who will put middle class families first - join me in voting for Barack Obama. Paid for by the Colorado Democratic Party...."So now, they're trying to corrupt the message about Joe the Plumber and pretend he really is for Obama's tax plan... pitiful.

This is a different Joe as the first one was ID'd as from Falls Church, Virginia, and this one is from Colorado.
