Obama Campaign National Co-Chair Admits Giving Students Credit For Volunteering to Elect Democrats

It’s an Obama world.

In November 2011 Loretta Harper was awarded All Star of the Week for her dedication to the Obama Campaign.

Today Loretta Harper of Las Vegas was named a national co-chair of the Obama 2012 Campaign.

The Obama campaign appreciates her hard work.
Part of that work includes giving high school students credits for volunteering for democrat campaigns.
Write on Nevada reported:

We’ve had public schools teaching kids to literally sing President Obama’s praises, so why not take a more direct route and put those kids to work?

Loretta Harper of Las Vegas is a newly named national co-chair of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. …

Harper, 58, is a counselor at Desert Pines High School. She’s also a member of the Board of Directors of the Nevada State Educators Association.

During the 2008 Obama campaign, when he won Nevada on his way to the presidency, Harper said she got more than 100 students extra credit when they volunteered to help elect the Democrat. (Emphasis added.)

No word on if Harper, who makes $74,000 a year plus benefits, plans to expand outreach “efforts” like this nationwide now that she’s a co-chair of Obama’s re-election campaign, but if you’ve got “free labor” available, why not take advantage?

As Write on Nevada clarified in their post, Harper gave students credit not extra credit for volunteering for democrats.

    It makes no difference whether it was for “credit” or “extra credit”; it was inappropriate, and she should be disciplined.

    What is this teaching our kids??? If the child, that is being USED BY THE TEACHER, agrees with the teacher on her political beliefs then they will be rewarded but if the child disagrees with the teacher then the child gets…… a bad grade possibly or whatever she wants to do to them??? WOW! I think this is wrong and the teacher should receive a reprimand for sharing her political belief while in the classroom in the school. There should be NO credit whatsoever given to STUDENTS for a political view. This is a personal opinion.

    #8 Truth teller: Lol.

    Most kids have very pliable minds and Ms. Harper is using this to her advantage. Will anyone call her on it? Maybe, but probably not. Well, unless Sharron Angle is the mother of one of these kids…

    The administration and school board are the ones who should be looked at in this situation. She couldn’t do it without their approval. This is why school board elections are so important to the future of this country.

    if she was a good teacher her students wouldn’t even know what her political beliefs were. her and any other teacher that does this should be fired.

    No one can doubt her teeth.

    Do we happen to have any ELECTED officials in DC on our side?? How about lawyers? They slap lawsuits faster than the speed of light all over Repubs, crosses, Christmas trees, signs, and in general anything they do not want said out loud, and our side can not find a way to return the favor????????????????

    I am so sick of our ELECTED and GOP being the dumb kids on the block. We had such a good shot if our elite and dumb bums had taken that 2010 election and run with it. Heck no. Boehner played golf. They did not stand their ground.

    Why not let all those Union teachers send in the kids? Who is to stop them? We have zip. Zero. Nada. We have our ELECTED leadership and a bunch that need to be hung by their thumbs. Not all. We have Issa, Inhofe, King, Bachman, Ryan, West, a bunch of newbies and several more. We need the ones at the top to get the message. Fight these thugs and if you can’t, step down and put in someone that will.

    And this is just another example of how Democrats cheat to get into office. And I still say that more than half, maybe even three forths of Democrats in office shouldn’t be there, Republican’s should be, or even conservative Democrats. And I know, that’s an ?aximoron?, what is that word? it means one thing negates the other thing when both are supposed to be the same, neither one is like the other. Anyway, we are looking at someone who will get to keep her damn star, like somekind of first grader getting a star for making a good letter on their paper. She deserves to be put in prison for fraud, campaign violations, or something. Obama needs to have this offence added to the already loooooong list of criminal offences he is actually legally guilty of actually committing. I have verified this through my Congressman, Obama is guilty of committing many crimes. I asked him, ” Then what are you waiting for, have the man arrested!” He wrote me back and said, “It’s not the right time yet.”

    Well, at least then, there’s hope. There’s some “hope” for you!

    Loretta Harper’s actions are on a par with her looks (I’m not sure, but I think I saw her sister behind a desk at the DMV).

    If I had a kid at the Desert Pines High School, I’d be worried. Teachers and councilors like this do nothing less than poison fertile minds, and insure the demise of this Country.

    Her teeth and skin color are off limits and out-of-bounds, and have nothing to do with the awfulness of her brain-washing children to become socialist Democrats. Using a student-pay system to bribe children to be useful tools for the left is academic extortion and should be punished harshly. Liberalism is a disease, and Loretta Harper is a carrier, purposely infecting the young, ruining them for life. Fire her, for the children.

    Maybe she can take some of the big bucks she makes to the dentist! If those chompers were shortened about 2″she would be able to close her mouth.
