During the 2008 presidential race, a bogus Christmas card “from the Romney family,” containing controversial quotes from the Book of Mormon, found its way into the mailboxes of South Carolina Republicans. Holiday greetingsappeared positive, with the greeting reading, “We wish you and your family a happy holiday season and a joyful New Year,” but the foul play from the covert authors was far from merry.
