obama-text.thumbnail.jpgIn a ploy to keep the tech-friendly but politically n00b and naive  voters away from the polls "someone" has sent out the following text messages  to cellphones in Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Missouri, Arizona, Alabama …and obviously potentially more, per Rock the Vote’s youth vote boiler room DC:

Due to long lines tomorrow, all Obama voters are urged to vote Wednesday.

No clue how the recipients’ cellphone numbers are being accessed.

One of the originating text numbers has a woman’s name and friendly out going message, the other a generic voicemail message. Neither returned messages left for them.fc5b479b73a3853379edc5c3610312b44d90c451.thumbnail.jpg
