McCain's bailout for Hillsborough Co.



MccainadNeed a job?

McCain campaign officials in Hillsborough County sent out this solicitation Saturday offering $12 an hour to anyone willing to walk door-to-door. "Walk as many shifts per week as you want," the ad says.

Republicans insist there is nothing unusual about using paid canvassers and say it pales in comparison with the volunteer effort. But the GOP has slammed Democrats for doing the same in the past. Democrats are apparently using some paid workers as well.
