According to the Atlanta Journal/Constitution, at a rally held to demand deportation of illegal immigrants (shockingly hosted by a white male from the suburbs), 14 homeless people were paid $10 each to hold signs in a crowd of several dozen at the state Capitol.
Yes, they hired people who were homeless probably because the rally was in the middle of the work day and everyone with homes had jobs to attend. This kinda undercuts the "save our jobs by sending home the illegals" argument. Luckily, they were able to find like-minded homeless people. These are people who don't want their handouts shared.
King Mitchell, 28, said he he was paid $10 to hold a placard, but also personally agrees with those who want to clamp down on illegal immigration. Mitchell said he stays at the Gateway Center, an Atlanta homeless shelter.Unfortunately, this directly contradicts Anthony-Scott "No Spin Zone" Hobbs who is the chairman of the Cobb County Republican Party and the rally's chief organizer, who (oops!) has said he had not hired anyone to attend the rally.
This is unethical and simply wrong on so many levels, I don't know where to begin. Please comment and help me figure on a scale between simple politics in action to eternal damnation -- Where does this land?
