Cindy Sheehan, the peace-activist-mom who lost a son in Iraq and who gained national prominence by protesting outside of President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, says she has been the victim of “dirty tricks” in her campaign to dislodge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in CA-08.

In her campaign blog earlier this week, Sheehan says that:

–Her hotel phone in Denver during the Democratic National Convention was “bugged.”

–Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa personally intervened to stop her from speaking at a music festival.

–She was forced to file for a restraining order against a former volunteer who she says was sending threatening e-mails and who she now thinks was a “spy” for Nancy Pelosi.

–She was the victim of intentional vandalism when the tail lights of her RV were busted out.

–That one of her campaign interns was assaulted when she struggled against four men who walked into her office feigning that they wanted to register to vote but apparently intended to computer equipment instead.

–That she has been summoned to begin jury duty in San Francisco on the week of the Nov. 4 elections.

–That a recent round “robo calls” that she paid for began contacting voters at 10:30 p.m. on a recent weekend night instead of the early week night time slot she had scheduled.
