Romney’s not the only Republican who likes voter intimidation via employers. Patriots!
Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) encouraged supporters at a recent campaign event to scare their employees into voting for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
In a video released by progressive super PAC CREDO and first reported on by the Chicago Sun-Times, Walsh can be seen advising business owners and managers to apply a little suggestive pressure on their workers.
“If you run, manage or own a company tell your employees. What was the CEO this week that said, ‘If Obama is reelected, I may have to let all of you go next year? If Obama’s reelected, if the Democrats take Congress, I may not be able to cover your health insurance next year… If there’s ever a year where people who run, manage, or own their companies are going to energize their employees, it better be this year. We’re up against it.”
