John Kerry Campaign Hires Fired Worker
POSTED: 9:06 am EDT September 15, 2004
DETROIT -- Democrat John Kerry has a new campaign worker helping him drum up support in Alabama after hiring a woman who was fired for displaying the presidential candidate's bumper sticker on her car.
Kerry called Lynne Gobbell on Tuesday after reading a newspaper story describing how she had been fired last Thursday from her job packing cellulose insulation at a Moulton, Ala., plant.
Gobbell said her former employer had told her she could either work for him or Kerry. She said Kerry told her, "Let him know that as of today, you're working for John Kerry." "He was proud of me for standing up for what I believe in," the newly employed, 41-year-old said of her quick phone call with the candidate.
Gobbell said Kerry didn't offer too many details about her new position. She will be helping the campaign and may be traveling a little as it gets closer to the election.
She could receive help from another corner, as well. A liberal Web site, AMERICAblog.org, began raising money for Gobbell on Monday night after learning of her dismissal. John Aravosis, who runs the site, said he collected $1,800 over a 24-hour period.
Hats off to the man who fired her!
Cool! So next time when I screw up at my job, I'll just slap a Kerry sticker on my car and inform the news service! Really saves time! Wow.
She'll soon be unemployed again. Less than sixty days
I think the employer is a jerk to fire her. What relevance does her bumper sticker have to job performance? If the shoe were on the other foot and she were fired for having a Bush/Cheney bumper sticker (and something very likely to happen in the blue state I'm in), you'd be singing a different tune.
I bet I know what her job with the Kerry campaign is...eating all of Kerry's take-out orders from the BBQ, fastfood, etc. restaurants they stop at to "mingle with the little folk."
Sooooo- Today is Sept 15, and she has a job until Nov 2. Doesn't sound like anything more than Peewee's Great Adventure, kinda like a long camping trip.
What did she do in her prior job that makes her qualified to work for Kerry? How about her home/family responsibilities? Yup- the Great Adventure.....
Who's to say its true?
Yes, and she will hire John Edwards to sue her former employer for 15 million dollars.
I don't think she will ever have to work another day in her life.
If she's parking in his parking lot I guess he has every right to not want he political advertising on his property...and she has every right to find another job.
sKerry is in Madison, Wis today.
In Madison, they would call this lady "a healthy heifer".
This is the next vicitm! Gore had his can woman (the woman who had to pick up deposit cans to pay for her perscription drugs). Kerry has his bumper sticker gal - I bet her job got "outsourced" too.
I recon he can pretty much set standards for vehicles on his property.
Exactly! The dims are proven liars, you can't believe a word any of them say.
A likely story!
They hired her to tighten up Kerry's message on Iraq. She will have the desk right next to Begala and Carvel.
