A new TV commercial for Mitt Romney is on the air. It features coal miners and Himself, claiming that President Obama is killing the coal industry, presumably with all those pesky regulations.
Someone in the media thought to ask the mine owner, Murray Energy, if the miners were all there voluntarily.
“Attendance at the Romney event was mandatory,” said Rob Moore, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, “but no one was forced to attend.”
OK … good. Glad we cleared that up.
