Iowa Independent: Rural Iowa Obama supporter says smear emails working

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

One prominent Western Iowa supporter of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama says
he's thinks misleading chain emails and rumor mongering are eroding
his candidate's support among older voters. "Even though John McCain
doesn't know how to use an email other people his age do," said Dr.
Steven Kraus, founder and president of Future Health, Inc. in Carroll.
Kraus, who sat next to the Obamas at the Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner
weeks before the Iowa Caucuses and served as the presidential
candidate's co-chair for Carroll County during that process, says
emails falsely referring to Obama as a Muslim are having an effect
with older voters he talks to in rural Iowa.
