Obama Calls Funder of MySpace Page After Flap Over Control

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senator Barack Obama may have started to smooth ruffled feathers over his campaign's decision to take control of a MySpace page listed under his name.

The Democratic presidential candidate has spoken with the supporter who started the page more than two years ago.

Los Angeles paralegal Joe Anthony had said he was heartbroken that the Obama campaign was "bullying" him out of the page he built. He also said that the candidate lost his vote. But after a phone call from Obama, Anthony said he's yet to decide if he'll personally continue to support the Democrat.

Obama's campaign took control of the page after becoming concerned about someone else controlling its message. The campaign previously had helped the page and provided content.

The campaign balked at paying Anthony for more than 40-thousand dollars for his work on the site and fees.
