President Barack Obama Targeted By Anonymous Hate Text Messages

WASHINGTON -- A sting of vitriol-laden text messages hit voters' phones Tuesday night, blasting President Barack Obama with anti-gay attacks and false claims.

In what appeared to be a coordinated campaign of cell phone text mail or text messages, one Virginia voter received one from the address sms@votegopett.com that made the inflammatory claim: "Obama supports homosexuality and its radical social agenda. Say No to Obama on Nov 6!"

New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman tweeted that his 13-year-old daughter also got a text. "Obama denies protection to babies who survive abortions. Obama is just wrong,"; said the message from sms@gopmessage.com. HuffPost's Sam Stein also got a message, declaring"Seniors cant afford to have 4 more years of Obama budget cuts to Medicare."

Some of the messages did not seem well-targeted.

Jennifer Cryer tweeted that she got one from sms@obamaliesett.com that said: "Stop Obama from forcing gay marriage on the states. Your vote is your voice." Cryer used her voice, and answered back, saying "I'm gay, you fucking douchebags."
