Iowa county's coordinator for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign quit on Wednesday for allegedly sending several e-mails naming Barack Obama as a muslim seeking to destroy the U.S. when elected as president.
Judy Rose, a voluntary coordinator for Clinton in Jones County, Iowa, sent several e-mails on Nov. 21, describing Obama as some sort of Manchurian candidate for Muslims, including Gary Hart, a Democratic Party official in Jones County.
In response to the act, the Clinton campaign team asked Rose to step down.
There is no place in our campaign, or any campaign for this kind of politics, Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle said in a statement Wednesday. A volunteer county coordinator made the mistake of forwarding an outrageous and offensive chain e-mail. This was wholly unauthorized and we were totally unaware of it.
Obama Campaign declined to comment on her resignation.
Rose was serving on Clinton's Women's Leadership Council.
