Some employers coercing employees to vote for Romney

Stephen Colbert points out how the oligarchy seems to be pulling out all stops in their effort to get Mitt Romney elected by threatening their employees with dire consequences if Barack Obama should win, and are even forcing them to take part in his campaign. And it is all legal, apparently.

    I saw this report, and after shaking my head in disbelief, I thought there’s no reason why, assuming you were unsupervised while canvassing, you couldn’t, for example, canvass for Romney in drag, falling down drunk, or dressed in a Nazi uniform. Or some combination of the three.

    Don’t those voter-ID laws protect us against this kind of abuse of the system?!
