Boxer Campaign Violates Law by Asking Teachers to Solicit Students for Boxer Campaign

Click image for larger view.

Barbara Boxer's Campaign staff has sent a letter (posted above) to teachers asking them to solicit student volunteers for the Boxer campaign. The letter suggests extra credit for students who participate. This is violation of California law. Don't hold your breath waiting for California AG Jerry Brown to take action.

Via Flash Report:
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.
