Volunteer Fired For Calling Obama Muslim

MIAMI -- A volunteer working for a Republican congressman was
dismissed after telling a Miami voter that Democratic presidential nominee
Barack Obama was a Muslim.

Claims that Obama is a Muslim have persisted for months, although Obama
is a Christian.

Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart's campaign manager, Ana Carbonell, said the
South Florida congressman personally called the voter Monday to
apologize for the volunteer's statements.

Carbonell said the volunteer had worked at the campaign office in the
past, but Monday was her first time making calls to voters. The campaign
manager said callers are supposed to work off of a script, but the
volunteer was not following it when she made the statements about
Obama's religion.
