The Edwards campaign is accusing Barack Obama of hypocrisy a Nevada radio ad produced by UNITE HERE, a group of 440,000 textile, hotel and restaurant workers that has endorsed Barack Obama. The Obama campaign had condemned such groups as “shadowy” when Edwards was benefiting from their help in Iowa.
Here’s an email I just got from Edwards deputy campaign manager Jonathan Prince: "When Senator Obama says turn the page, he obviously means turn to whatever page is most convenient. He loudly and repeatedly attacked independent ads by unions in Iowa as the product of special interests. But when a different outside group starts running ads on his behalf in Nevada, there’s not a peep from him or his campaign. It must be because he’s burning up the phone lines calling the head of UNITE HERE personally to demand he pulls the ads down right away."
