SEIU Deploys Its Army of Purple People Beaters To Serve As Obama Campaign Troops, Could Cost As Much As $85 Million?
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) launched on Tuesday a massive grass-roots campaign to help President Obama’s and the union’s other endorsed candidates’ election efforts.
The union will field a more than 100,000-strong volunteer army, staffed by union and non-union members, to help their chosen candidates. The union’s campaign aims to reach voters through 13 million phone calls, knock on 3 million doors and hold more than 1 million conservations across the country.
SEIU officials have said in the past that the union spent $85 million on its 2008 political program.
