A Pennsylvania State Rep. Is Casting "Extras" to Pretend to Support Him At Polling Places Today
Pennsylvania state Rep. Kevin Boyle is up for reelection today, and according to a casting call email forwarded to Gawker, he needs some extra friends at Philadelphia polling stations.
The following was sent to us yesterday:
Only $120 seems a little light for a 13 hour standing workday, but at least there’s an open bar afterwards.
A representative from the Mike Lemon Casting Agency confirmed the email’s authenticity but could not provide any comment. The email provides barely any detail about what “extras” will actually do at these polling stations, though Pennsylvania law prohibits any electioneering inside the sites, or within 10 feet of them from the outside. A spokesperson from the Pennsylvania Department of State told me “there is nothing in the Pennsylvania Election Code that addresses the specific situation you’re describing.”
The Kevin Boyle campaign did not return multiple requests for comment.
