Republican says it's 'creepy' Obama campaign requesting GOP email addresses

(By Alicia M. Cohn, The Hill) - A House Republican thinks it's a little "creepy" that President Obama's reelection campaign is offering donors a chance to enter the email addresses of Republican friends.

Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) tweeted Wednesday: "Obama campaign asking for donors to give them GOP email addresses. Tricky, yes. Creepy, definitely."

Obama's deputy campaign manager, Julianna Smoot, sent out an email on Tuesday playing on the "frustrating" partisan disagreements taking place between Obama supporters and conservative friends, family or acquaintances.
