It’s pretty sad when you have to bribe your supporters!

From FriedUp Missouri:

Wow, the Kay Barnes campaign is now pulling out all the stops to bribe I mean get volunteers. Before they were offering $50 for an eight hour day (which is less than minimum wage) and now they are offering pre-season Chiefs tickets.

Rocky Mountain News: (via Rush Limaugh) “Still, [Heather Kreider, a working mother from Centennial, Pennsylvania] got a message telling her that she had to do six hours of volunteer work by Friday if she wanted a chance at a ticket.

And it’s just disappointing.’

A man, who spoke to the Rocky on the condition that he not be named, said he got a message saying he had to do 12 hours of phone work or canvassing to have a chance at the two tickets he wants [to meet Obama]. Asked if he planned to do the work, he said ‘hell no’ and called the campaign’s conditions ‘blackmail.'”
