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:
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.
