ok guys, I kept this a secret for a long time because I thought it might hurt the Obama campaign, but I feel like I can come out with it now it seems Obama has the nomination locked...
Vernon Robinson did door-to-door canvassing for Obama!
If you don't know who vernon Robinson is, he's about the nastiest politician you can imagine. There are plenty of stories about him on BlueNC, including one by Betsy.
Anyway, on to my "revelation".
This happened on election day in the South Carolina primary. I had volunteered for the Obama campaign in SC for about a month. On election day I helped out with the GOTV effort in Rock Hill, SC.
That morning I showed up at the staging location for that day and got drafted to be a precinct GOTV captain.
While training the folks that were going to work with me, I noticed this big tall guy coming in and I recognized his face. I went over to him and sure enough, he said his name was Vernon. My jaw dropped to the ground at this point.
He turned out to be a precinct captain as well!
I went over to the person who headed the GOTV operation for the whole Rock Hill area that day and told her who Vernon Robinson was. They had no clue who they were dealing with.
She told me they would keep a very close eye on him that day. I soon left and canvassed my butt off all day. I haven't seen Vernon Robinson since.
Does anyone have an idea about what his motives might have been?
