ANAMOSA, Iowa -- The Birther conspiracy doesn't look to be going away.

It took center stage at Monday night's presidential debate and left an Iowan at the center of it.

Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, "The birther lie was a very hurtful one. You know, Barack Obama is a man of great dignity, and I could tell how much it bothered him and annoyed him that this was being touted and used against him."

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump wasn't ready to give up so easily saying, "Her campaign manager Patti Doyle went to, during her campaign against President Obama, fought very hard, and you can go look it up, and you can check it out, and if you look at CNN this past week Patti Solis Doyle was on Wolf Blitzer saying that this happened. Blumenthal sent McClatchy, a highly-respected reporter at McClatchy to Kenya to find out about it. They were pressing it very hard, she failed to get the birth certificate. When I got involved, I didn't fail. I got him to give the birth certificate. So I'm satisfied with it, and I’ll tell you why I’m satisfied with it."

Clinton's 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle responded shortly after the debate.

"There was a volunteer coordinator in Iowa in late 2007 with the Clinton campaign who forwarded an email about Obama's heritage saying he was a Muslim," Solis Doyle said.

That volunteer, who Trump believes may have pushed the Obama controversy within the Clinton campaign, was Judy Rose of Anamosa, Iowa.

"I shared it with Jones County Democrats not knowing that one gentlemen was an Obama one," Rose said.

Rose, a longtime Democrat supporter, felt the email was relevant. "It looks to me he could have been Muslim, where he was born," she said.

She was let go quickly.

"We didn't want to run that type of campaign," said Solis Doyle.

Rose felt the firing was unnecessary saying, "It got really blown out and that's when Mrs. Clinton threw me under the bus."

Those wounds cut deep. For neighbors walking around her Anamosa home, it's easy to see who she won't be voting for in November of 2016.

A sign that reads "Never Hillary," is prominently displayed on Rose's front lawn.

"After that, I told the Democratic party goodbye," Rose said.

Upon revisiting the email she made no excuses, Rose said, "Haha, ok. I see it there in black and white."

In retrospect, Judy has some regrets, but in her mind, it was also revealing.

"If I could go back and redo it I wouldn't send it. By doing so, I got to see the real Mrs. Clinton. That she will say and do anything to get elected. It makes me feel like I'm glad I'm not voting Democrat and no longer supporting her."

Judy Rose says she has not given any money to the Democratic Party since being let go. She says she her presidential vote will go to Republican candidate Donald Trump.
