Republican blogger Soren Dayton is not a fan of Mitt Romney's, but this conclusion of his seems accurate:

Mitt Romney is family friends with the Founder and Chairman of the company that is placing anti-Mormon and anti-Romney phone calls?



As he writes: who would have the audacity to use a Utah call center to make anti-Mormon calls?

The implication, if I understand Dayton, is that Romney allies (operating separately from the campaign) might somehow be involved in this...maybe trying to gin up sympathy for their candidate.

That's most unlikely, but it really is, as they say, a small world.
