TRENTON, N.J. - Lifelong Republican Richard Bonnet pays attention to politics, so when he found a message on his answering machine from Norman Schwarzkopf saying he was voting for John Kerry this year, he was momentarily stunned.

"I thought I saw Bush down in Florida, with Schwarzkopf standing on the stage next to him," Bonnet, 69, of Howell Township, said Monday. "So I called up the Monmouth County Republican headquarters and they said he was a Bush supporter."

On Sunday, the retired general gave Bush a strong endorsement in Tampa, Fla. Schwarzkopf released a statement Monday saying that the Democratic National Committee was making fraudulent phone calls and demanded that they stop.

"I am supporting President Bush for re-election because he is the candidate who has demonstrated the conviction needed to defeat terrorism," Schwarzkopf said.

The taped phone call ends with a voice saying the ad was paid for by the DNC. Calls to the DNC office in Washington were not immediately returned.

Anyone but this one lady reporting this?

I hope its just kids making some sort of prank phone call... yeesh.

Oh, and if you're going to choose someone to support Kerry, couldn't you get a better person to lie about than Schwarzkopf? Why not say McCain? At least that might be believable....

'Course, there's no proof that the DNC or the Kerry campaign is behind this. Just like there's no evidence that the Bush campaign is behind the effort to mis-register college kids.
