Iowa Insider: Phony e-mail claims supporter left Huckabee for Romney

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider

The campaign for Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is
complaining about a bogus e-mail apparently sent out to Iowa activists
claiming that one of his most prominent supporters is now backing
rival Mitt Romney. The e-mail, which purports to be from Sioux City
Republican Bob Vander Plaats, urges others to join him at a news
conference at the State Capitol Wednesday. The phony e-mail says
Vander Plaats no longer is supporting Huckabee after the candidate
failed to meet fund-raising goals. "It's obviously a dirty trick
designed to create doubt among our supporters," said Eric Woolson, a
spokesman for Huckabee's campaign. Vander Plaats said people have
asked him about the e-mail, which appears to come from an e-mail
account with his name, but it did not come from him.
