'Mandatory' - Coal Workers forced to attend Romney rally Without pay

Fri Oct 5, 2012

Over the summer, Mitt Romney held a campaign event in Beallsville, Ohio, with a group coal miners, which was soon after turned into a television ad in the Buckeye State. But as it turns out, the closer one looks at the campaign stop, the more interesting it becomes.

For one thing, the miners used as props by the Romney campaign lost pay during the event, and were "forced to attend." The Obama campaign even put out an ad of its own on this a few days ago.

1. What really irks me about this, is that Romney (or his advisers, at least) KNOW about this



and they missed a golden opportunity to hit it out of the park, by paying these miners their day's pay.

Romney is a cheapskate, his own wife says so.
