Another Ramirez Prank?

Ben Smith has this interesting item on his blog:
So somebody is making a pitch for Hispanic Bloomberg volunteers on Craigslist:

"If you are interested in volunteering for a major political race then keep reading. As you know, NYC, post 9/11, the city had to come to grips with the destruction of the World Trade Center and the lives lost.... Based on this, NEW LEADERSHIP was what people voted for. That LEADERSHIP was one given to a gentleman by the name of Michael Bloomberg, your current mayor... [Feel] free to come on board and volunteer for Mayor Bloomberg.

The reply-to address is Anyone know who that is?
A commenter on Ben's blog then helpfully suggests that the e-mail address belongs to a bizarre-looking GOP consulting firm called American Strategies LLC.


With Terence Tolbert on board Mike for Mayor and Fernando Mateo possibly on his way, Kevin Sheekey hires a West Point cadet named Brett to recruit Latino volunteers on Craigslist?

Are we sure this isn't another Ramirez prank?
