Senator Barbara (Babs) Boxer has obviously gotten really desperate to extend her 28-year political career. Now she's urging public school teachers to recruit students to work for her campaign, and offer them extra credit if they do it. Against the law? Who cares what the law is--the Progressives have a country to transform! Screw the law! And while you're at it, screw the Constitution, too! 🙄

And I still don't understand how the Left can keep a straight face and continue to deny meddling with highschool and college students. It makes sense though, that the Left aggressively seeks to keep the young'ens--and for that matter the Hispanics and the poor/homeless--locked into their voting base; these are among the least informed groups of the entire voting public. It seems the more educated and informed folks are, the more likely they are to vote in favor of evil things like "Capitalism," "Individual Liberty," and the "Constitution." 💡

Boxer faces ethics complaint for telling teachers to send students to work for campaign

In a close election race against former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina, California Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer is facing new ethics complaints over asking teachers to send their students to work for her campaign.

In an Oct. 27 letter to California education authorities, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA), a non-profit group urging lower taxes, said, “In abject ignorance of California state law, the political campaign of Senator Barbara Boxer has openly solicited teachers employed by [Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)] to urge their students to volunteer for her campaign.” The HJTA letter refers to a letter obtained by the Flash Report, an influential California political blog, from the Boxer campaign that urges teachers to recruit their students to work for Boxer’s campaign.

“As you may know, Senator Boxer is facing her toughest race yet,” the letter from Boxer says, “please let us know if your students are able to help.”

Boxer’s campaign was unable to immediately comment on either its letter nor the HJTA’s letter.

HJTA’s letter cites a portion of California law governing teachers’ conduct which makes it illegal for teachers to solicit political support of students, including donations and volunteer work.

As President Obama found out when he was forced to tone down what critics decried as the partisan content of a lesson plan he gave teachers to accompany a speech he was giving to students nationwide, the political input provided to schoolchildren remains a bitterly charged subject, as many parents desire to provide children their own take on often polarized issues.

It's happening all over the place in early election states.

The left knows they are done, so if they can't win it, they will steal it.. With Holder holding down the fort at DOJ they may just pull it off. 🙄
