Giuliani Robocall Attacks Obama As Soft On Crime

Former Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani has recorded a robocall knocking Barack Obama for opposing "mandatory prison sentences for sex offenders, drug dealers, and murderers."

"It's true," Giuliani says. "I read Obama's words myself."

CBS News has confirmed that the call, which you can listen to here, is being deployed in battleground states. It is being paid for "by the Republican National Committee and McCain-Palin 2008."

The script:

Hi, this is Rudy Giuliani, and I'm calling for John McCain and the Republican National Committee because you need to know that Barack Obama opposes mandatory prison sentences for sex offenders, drug dealers, and murderers. It's true, I read Obama's words myself. And recently, Congressional liberals introduced a bill to eliminate mandatory prison sentences for violent criminals -- trying to give liberal judges the power to decide whether criminals are sent to jail or set free. With priorities like these, we just can't trust the inexperience and judgment of Barack Obama and his liberal allies.
