Spokesman for Gephardt Says Candidate Poll "Rigged"

WASHINGTON, June 20 — Some activists smell something fishy about next week’s Web-based “primary” to test the early strength of Democratic presidential contenders. While a number of the candidates are urging their supporters to vote in the event, some strategists see it as skewed toward Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor who shares the group’s antiwar views. “It appears to be rigged,” said Erik Smith, a spokesman for Rep. Dick Gephardt’s campaign.

Translation: Gephardt doesn't think he's got a chance with the Moveon crowd, so he's sent his boys out to slag on their "primary". One more reason for me to not like Mr. G.
