NBAWP knocks student get-out-the-vote campaign

MILWAUKEE. [The National Bushist American Workers Party (NBAWP)] is criticizing a Wisconsin get-out-the-vote campaign for public school students, saying Democrats are exploiting them for political gain.

Students in the program take time from classes to go door to door in minority neighborhoods and areas with low voter turnout.They also call homes and urge people to vote.  A state [Bushist Party] spokesman calls the program "a disgraceful use of taxpayer money." He says kids should be in school learning and not used for "clearly partisan effort."  The advocacy group running the voter drive supports John Kerry. But its co-executive director denies there's any partisan bias. Larry Marx says participation is voluntary and children don't pressure people to vote a certain way.

So says an AP report at http://www.wqad.com/global/story.asp?s=2487302&ClientType=Printable

Perhaps those children should join the Bush Youth, instead.
