Pizza Party Politics in Columbus

COLUMBUS -- Ohio Republicans claim some Democratic groups are influencing students to vote for President Obama by offering free pizza.

Last week, Ohio GOP Chairman Robert Bennett filed a complaint with the Franklin County Elections Board. He claims the group 'Buckeyes for Obama' held a party at the Ohio Union on the Ohio State University campus, offered the 50 attendees free pizza, then took them to an early voting center in Columbus.

GOP Spokesman Matt Henderson says that's illegal, "The Obama campaign has an obligation to follow the rules, and when this is happening on a mass scale, that can affect and impact the election."

Ohio Democrats disagree. Spokesman Jerid Kurtz says, "Pizza parties don't cause someone to vote for a particular candidate or someone else -- so what we're seeing here is a childish action by the Ohio Republican Party."

Kurtz says both parties host events with free food, and they're not telling anyone who to vote for, "No one has called on anyone to vote a certain way because they received a slice of pepperoni pizza."

At issue is whether students are being induced or influenced to vote a certain way. The Franklin County Board of Elections is investigating.

Pizza? I would have held out for a sorority gal. Nobody going to change a vote, or bother to vote for a pizza. The GOP should save their ammo for the bigger stuff.

To me it’s stunning that they offer free pizza on a college campus and only got 50 takers!

The Dem stooge knows fully well that it is one thing to have a pep rally where you give out free pizza to jazz people to vote vs. handing out free pizza AND actually driving them to the polls in the same stroke.

The bunch from my old residence hall would have definitely eaten the pizza and then voted for the other guy. Regardless of party.

The Dem student party did that on campus years ago at my university and so did the Pubbies’. I only went to the Dem freebies as it was easy for me to pick up lib women...they’re easy and dumb as rocks.

ROFL.....No you weren't, you were just having some fun at their expense. College kids are hungry, especially pizza, and out to make as much good clean mischief as they can. IT'S Party Time.

“Hungry college kids will eat anyone’s food. lol”

Exactly. I did the same thing at uni as I wanted to meet girls and grab some free food. Every student group, especially the brain-dead lib ones, offer free grub. I didn’t care what they were selling, I just wanted food and girls phone numbers and pretended to care..

Hungry college kids will eat anyone's food pretty much anything that doesn't eat them first.

Fixed it for you.

Students should vote in their actual home precincts, not where they go to college.

I wonder how many do both.
