'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.
