TPM: E-Mail Lists 'Birther' As Recruitment Coordinator For IL Poll Watching Effort
E-Mail Lists 'Birther' As Recruitment Coordinator For IL Poll Watching Effort

Ryan J. Reilly | October 21, 2010, 12:00PM

Sharon Meroni, an Illinois resident who is a member of the so-called birther movement, is listed as "Recruitment Coordinator" in an e-mail obtained by TPMMuckraker.

Illinois is the location of an apparently significant anti-voter fraud effort focused on part of the states with high concentrations of minority voters, which came under scrutiny after GOP Senate candidate Mark Kirk said that he was deploying "voter integrity" squads to monitor the elections there.

Meroni's website lists the Illinois GOP as a co-sponsor. GOP Chairman Pat Brady told TPMMuckraker that Meroni is not on the payroll.

Meroni, according to Mother Jones, blogs under the pseudonym "Chalice Jackson" and launched a petition demanding Obama's resignation for "high crimes and misdemeanors." Reached on Monday, Meroni wouldn't answer TPMMuckraker's questions, referring any inquiries to Curt Conrad, who is listed online as the Executive Director, IL Republican State Committee.
