Last minute dirty trick?

Just came across this paragraph in an electrion roundup in this morning's The Scotsman:

***In Virginia, where McCain was campaigning yesterday morning in an attempt to keep it Republican, leaflets had been distributed purporting to come from the state government, saying Republicans should vote on November 4 and Democrats vote on November 5.***


Maybe just a simple error, eh? Neil

Yeah, probably just an easily explained away faux pas. (Not)
I'll drink to that. Or anything else for that matter.

Think anyone would be daft enough to have fallen for it, Derf? Neil

They've been talking about this on CNN for a few days now. Apparently Obama is running ads pointing out that the leaflets are false and the Secretary of State in Virgina has issued a statement.
