    peace

    I would hope that michelle would know how to spell poUring.

    I think it's a scam simply because she usually uses her full name.

    It's probably a republican site that has phished out the emails of black supporters.

    I used to rec'v emails from that camp a long while agon and don't recall the shameless begging of money.
    ...besides...if there are misspelled words? Probably isn't legit.

    I never send a thing to any that would solicit for it.

    lol - It's probably from a well known but, very disliked C student that did an 8 year stretch without being 'voted' for...

    The only reason he's only asking for 3, is because he more than likely can't count any higher.

    :skate:

    Obviously scam. Legit organizations will never ask you money by email.

    This is not true. As a former subscriber to Obama's website, I know for fact that it is primarily used to solicit funds. I used to get so many similar emails during his 2008 campaign that I finally decided to unsubscribe.

    As far as the email in question is concerned I can't say for sure if it is authentic or not until after I check my email.
