Jewish pro-Obama site tries to turn negative into positive


Jews Vote

Politico reports on, a new political action committee that is trying to use the same kinds of social networks which originally spread false rumors about Barack Obama to disseminate a positive message about the candidate in the Jewish community.

The Jewish Council for Educational Research was co-founded by Mik Moore, who took a leave from his job at Jewish Funds for Justice to work on the project through the Novemeber election. The site asks registrants for their contact list, then provides a variety of ways for members to reach those people with information about Obama.
