kalidasa's Journal: Grassroots gone wrong: Spamming for Ron Paul

Journal by kalidasa

Some spammer has been sending out spam supporting Ron Paul. I've reproduced enough of the headers to show the source of the spam, and enough of the content to make it clear that the pro-Ron Paul message isn't just a hash buster, but the actual content of the spam. I'll assume that this is not part of the Ron Paul strategy, but simply a case of grassroots gone wrong, but I would think the Ron Paul committee would want to stomp this now.

Hello Scott,

Ron Paul is for the people, unless you want your children to
have human implant RFID chips, a National ID card and create
a North American Union and see an economic collapse far worse
than the great depression. Vote for Ron Paul he speaks the
truth and the media and government is afraid of him.
