Sharon Meroni, an Illinois resident who is a member of the so-called birther movement, is listed as “Recruitment Coordinator” in an e-mail obtained by TPMMuckraker.
Illinois is the location of an apparently significant anti-voter fraud effort focused on part of the states with high concentrations of minority voters, which came under scrutiny after GOP Senate candidate Mark Kirk said that he was deploying “voter integrity” squads to monitor the elections there.
“If you’re unemployed right now, it’s something to add to your resume. You are out there, making a difference. So, Republicans, come together — we need judges,” said Sharon Meroni in a phone message I heard when I called a phone number listed on the e-mail.
Meroni, according to Mother Jones, blogs under the pseudonym “Chalice Jackson” and launched a petition demanding Obama’s resignation for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Reached on Monday, Meroni wouldn’t answer TPMMuckraker’s questions, referring any inquiries to Curt Conrad, who is listed online as the Executive Director, IL Republican State Committee.
“My role is to recruit, and that’s it,” she said.
