How do you know a politician’s ground game sucks? He has to pay people to play the part of “supporter.”
Pennsylvania State Rep. Kevin Boyle (D) is looking for supporters for a day. Stand at a Philadelphia polling location, wave a sign (probably, the email doesn’t enumerate specific duties), and you too could receive $120 plus free lunch and an invite to an open-bar at the end of the day.
Gawker obtained a casting call invite:
According to Gawker, the casting agency confirmed the email was legit, but Boyle’s campaign refused to comment.
Boyle isn’t the only politician to pay for the appearance of support. When he kicked off his presidential campaign, Donald Trump shelled out $50 to those willing to wear Trump swag and cheer for him.
Political theater, indeed.
