White House 'mole' aided Reagan election campaign

Memos written by two aides to President Carter were sent to top Reagan campaign aides less than a month before the election, it was reported. They were sent by a campaign volunteer who said they were provided by a ''White House mole.''

The memos were among a stack of Reagan campaign documents obtained by the Washington Post from a collector of campaign memorabilia. The information included memos on economic policy and budget documents.

The volunteer, Daniel Jones, told the Post he had only met the mole once and never knew the man's name. He said the material was given to him unsolicited.
