Do wonder when the California media’s gonna start paying attention to career politician Barbara Boxer’s mistakes, misdeeds and misstatements. Nor comes word that her campaign is “recruiting public school students through the teachers’ union.”
Jon Coupal has the scoop:
Today the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association notified the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Board of Education today that, in abject ignorance of California state law, the political campaign of Senator Barbara Boxer has openly solicited teachers employed by LAUSD to urge their students to volunteer for her campaign.
HJTA’s letter to the school district urges LAUSD to immediately inform all its personnel, credentialed or otherwise, that it would be a clear violation of law for teachers to recruit their students on school property during school hours to volunteer for a specific political campaign.
Guess the 28-year Washington veteran is finding it tough to attract volunteers for her faltering campaign, so she’s gotta use government resources to scare ’em up. Sorry, Ma’am, people just can’t get excited about sending you back to Washington to represent them.
Most people aren’t voting for the the three-termer because they’re proud of her record, but because of her partisan affiliation. But, if they look beyond the D, they find an F, a failed Senator.
Help retire this out-of-touch incumbent by supporting her energetic opponent!
UPDATE: Flap posted a copy of the letter from Boxer’s campaign. Yes, friends, it is a smoking gun. If a Republican had pulled a stunt like this, it’d be news.

. . . this teacher might have been willing to give Boxer a pass on this letter, were it not for the campaign video to share with students. Without it, it could simply be argued that it was nothing more than the campaign making teachers aware of volunteer opportunities for students interested in volunteering for a campaign. The video, however, makes it very clear that teachers were being asked to go beyond their mission of educating students and providing them with learning opportunities, and instead engage in political indoctrination in the classroom.
