In a close election race against former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina, California Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer is facing new ethics complaints over asking teachers to send their students to work for her campaign.
In an Oct. 27 letter to California education authorities, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA), a non-profit group urging lower taxes, said, In abject ignorance of California state law, the political campaign of Senator Barbara Boxer has openly solicited teachers employed by [Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)] to urge their students to volunteer for her campaign.
The HJTA letter refers to a letter obtained by the Flash Report, an influential California political blog, from the Boxer campaign that urges teachers to recruit their students to work for Boxers campaign.
As you may know, Senator Boxer is facing her toughest race yet, the letter from Boxer says, please let us know if your students are able to help.
Boxers campaign was unable to immediately comment on either its letter nor the HJTAs letter.
HJTAs letter cites a portion of California law governing teachers conduct which makes it illegal for teachers to solicit political support of students, including donations and volunteer work.

Liberals (Democrats) do stuff like this all the time; they see nothing wrong with it. But if a REPUBLICAN did it....
Complaints have never, and will never, thwart Demonrats’ dirty tricks/tactics.
Not as bad as what Patrick Murphy has done in PA.
This kind of stuff has been in the news for days and Californians and other libs from other states just yawn and pull the lever for whatever lying lib is on the ballot.
“In abject ignorance of California State Law...”
They’re also abjectly ignorant of(or abjectly dismissive of)the Constitution.
Anti-tax group files ethics complaint against Barbara Boxer; Boxer campaign apologizes

Will anyone do anything about it? File charges? ......I detest that these violations of law, just get passed under the rug!!!!
Ethics? We don’ need no steenkin’ ethics!
I would have to challenge that statement. She is related to the Kennedy’s.
Another "by all means possible" moment for the progressive criminals.
And if high schoolers or younger students are involved, we're talking child abuse to boot; exploiting the intellectually immature.
Hey Ma'm have you considered recruiting at mental institutions? Just a thought.
Why can't ordinary citizen voters file a class action suit against the political crook? Subverting the value of the vote is certainly an injury to the entire state citizenry.
Yep. What we need are charges and convictions. But that will never happen in places like CA.
And what might that be?
I'm sorry; I left my Ouija Board in my other suit...
Libs are pathetic. They view such indiscretions as bold, assertive, aggressive, and that person regardless of the law will get things done. BAAAAD is good.
The more indiscretions, the better in the eyes of the morons that comprise the Leftistsphere.
The best bet for the sake of our Nation is to legislate that only Citzens with brains can vote.
Checking: Is it still October?
It is not just sad, it's scary.
I’m sure that the Chair of the Senate Ethics committee (the Honorable Barbara Boxer) will get right on it. :)
