I don’t think a lot of folks on the right were surprised by this story:
Anthony Weiner is having such a hard time generating support for his limp campaign that he has resorted to paying a rent-a-crowd firm to provide “supporters” for his events, The Post has learned.
Some of the gung-ho Weiner crowds, including at the Aug. 11 Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, were really actors who were paid $15 an hour by the California firm Crowds on Demand, according to a source with direct knowledge of the deal.
I decided to check out the “Crowds on Demand” site and found the services page. They have a full list of services offered including the following
Celebrity Airport Greeting
Celebrity Shopping Experience
Celebrity Fan Experience
“It’s all about ME” Day
Rally for YOU
Here is one of there services described in detail:
Corporate Public Relations
Need help with a publicity stunt? Whether it’s a flash mob, a rally or anything else you can think of, our trained actors can create a brilliant event that gets your company the right kind of attention. This will create a strategic impact that will boost sales and earn you valuable press exposure.
Hmm press exposure, that’s interesting but not as interesting as this:
Campaigns need manpower and they need it quickly. We can provide that manpower to give your candidate or cause the edge. We can send supporters to a rally, (respectfully) protest outside opposition events, and help with regular campaign tasks such as canvassing or phone-banking.
Our operations in the two largest metropolitan areas in California makes us a perfect choice for ballot measure campaigns. We are available to do elections at all levels from neighborhood politics to national elections.
I sincerely doubt that Anthony Weiner suddenly found this company out of the blue, and we’ve seen plenty of examples of paid protesters showing up for the left so I have a question.
Over the years how many News reports have we seen with actors from this company and/or others featured as protesters or marchers undetected by the MSM, and given that question why would be trust news reports of such things in the future?
I’d be very interested to find out if this method was used to pad the nationwide fast food protests.
And if so did were they paid at least $15 an hour.
BTW in case the page or entry from Crowds on Demand on political activity comes down, here is a screen shot.
Those who trust what they see blindly are pretty blind themselves.
Under $150 to go.
