Here’s more from the Daily Mail:
Students at Marshwood High School received an email from the Clinton campaign asking them to sign up for positions as unpaid ‘fellows’ in order to fill the school community service requirement, reports Fox News.
Tim and Elita Galvin told Fox News that they found the email to their son and other students to be ‘disingenuous and sneaky,’ and said that both they and their son are not supporters.
The principal of the school seems to think it’s not a big deal:
Melhorn said that the students are under no obligation to participate in any one activity and hat it doesn’t mean that the school, ‘supports a particular political candidate, religious doctrine or branch of military.’
‘If other “campaigns” were to seek volunteers, we would pass that on also,’ he added.
School superintendent Mary Nash told Fox that the school should not get involved in political affairs.
‘If you want to campaign for someone – that’s fine – but that’s between the child and the parents,’ she said.
‘That’s not for the campaign to target you at school and it’s not for the school to suggest to you. That’s between you and your parents.’
Right, it’s just a coincidence that they happened to push info about helping a Democrat. Is it really that hard to find volunteering opportunities for Republican campaigns so that you at least keep the appearance of objectivity? Idiots.
