The Snuggles camp thinks so:
Our information comes from several sources. We cannot identify one. The other is Rev. Kenneth Walker, who was a top strategist for Jones’ campaign.
Said Walker: “I know for a fact, as Vernon’s strategist, that there was a meeting in Sen. Harry Reid’s office with David Axelrod from Obama’s campaign, and there was an agreement Obama’s campaign would help Jim Martin with the direct mail linking Vernon and George Bush.”
One mail piece hit mailboxes last Friday. The other hit on Monday, the day before the election.
Jones had tried to link himself with Obama during the campaign with his own mailers, including one in which his photo appeared next to Obama’s. But Obama said during an Atlanta appearance he had not endorsed Jones.
The Obama campaign and the Georgia Dems deny it all.
Caroline Adelman, a spokeswoman for the Obama campaign, said, “We were not involved in any way in that campaign. Neither the senator nor the campaign was involved.”
Georgia Democratic Party spokesman Martin Matheny said Thursday, “As far as us raising any money for Jim Martin, the charge is silly and it’s fatuous – and where’s the proof?”
