Miners Forced to Attend Romney Rally

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: August of 2012
Categories: Mitt Romney, Ohio & Coal Industry
When Mitt Romney campaigned at an Ohio coal mine earlier this month, he might not have realized that the miners were forced to be there — without pay — by the owner, Murray Energy. Miners said,"Just for the record, if we did not go, we knew what would happen,” if they didn't attend. Ohio has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission accusing the owner of Murray Energy Corporation of an illegal corporate contribution in the form of his employees.
