Supporters of Mitt Romney in Michigan report receiving negative messaging calls this weekend.

After a 45-second "survey," the calls turn into an advertisement for Mike Huckabee's campaign.

The telephone number recorded by the calls' recipients is registered to one Larry Hinton of Leafcrest Lane in Fairfax, Virginia.

At least one caller reports that the caller ID said "G.W. Bush" and a few came from "Virginia."

I tried the number tonight; it seems to be disconnected, which suggests that the caller was spoofing (masking) his source.
