James Carter IV, Jimmy Carter's Grandson, Arranged Mitt Romney Video Release
The grandson of former President Jimmy Carter and a self-fashioned Democratic opposition researcher, the younger Carter had watched countless hours of footage of Republican Mitt Romney and made it a habit to search YouTube every few days for keywords like "Romney" and "Republicans." . . .
Something told him there might be more there than the brief clip posted on the YouTube channel "Anne Onymous." . . .
So Carter, 35, of Atlanta, set out track down the source of the video. He sent a message to the YouTube user seeking details. No luck. But then, after sharing links to the video on Twitter, Carter realized he had a new follower with the same name as the YouTube account. He quickly shot off a direct message.
"They were wary at first," Carter said in an interview with The Associated Press. "But they did respond." . . .
