Wednesday Morning Round-Up



Six days... volunteer!

Not everyone thinks it's time for Joe to go. Check out this video love letter!
 
Met00 discusses whether the Lieberman campaign's plan to hire a New Jersey firm to pay 4,000 teenagers $60 a day to work for him (since he can't find any volunteers) is in fact an effort to buy their votes for the day:

A decent media buy will cost $1-2 million and there is no assurance that you will get one additional vote for any of that spending.

On the other hand, at $60/day for 7 days the Lieberman camp is planning on "hiring" 4000 people. One would hope after taking $420 from the candidate that these 4000 would also vote for the candidate.

For a cool $1.7 million Lieberman is assuring himself of 4000 votes.


Isn't this a group of teenagers from out-of-state? How would they be allowed to vote in the CT primary?
 
One would hope after taking $420 from the candidate that these 4000 would also vote for the candidate.

One would hope not, if they are being trucked in from Jersey. And if they are mostly under 18.
 
Anon 9:03-

My understanding is most of the Lieberman day laborers are local kids. It's the managers who are being trucked in from Jersey.
 
Anne Kornblut at the New York Times writes a revealing piece

you are right, this IS a good piece! I didn't think that Anne Kornblut had it in her to dig that deeply; the dodd quote was MOST interesting!
