Political Firing, Hiring 

I missed this until today, but last week a Georgia woman was fired from her manufacturing job because she refused to remove a John Kerry bumper sticker from her car. She had not discussed politics on her job or in the plant, but the plant owner had distributed pro-Bush pamphlets to all employees. Apparently her manager gaver her a message from the boss that she can either work for boss or for John Kerry.

She now works for John Kerry. The candidate read about the firing, and called her up to offer her a job on the campaign. A representative of the DNC apparently followed up the call, and will be working out the details with the newly re-employed Lynne Gobbell.
