    State GOP says Michael Moore illegally offered underwear in exchange for voting
    October 5, 2004, 6:19 PM


    LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan Republican Party is asking four county prosecutors to file charges against filmmaker Michael Moore, charging that he illegally offered underwear, noodles and snacks to college students in exchange for their promise to vote.

    "We want everyone to participate in this year's election, but not because they were bribed or coerced by the likes of Michael Moore," said Greg McNeilly, executive director of the state Republican Party.

    The GOP said it asked prosecutors in Wayne, Ingham, Antrim and Isabella counties to charge Moore with violating Michigan's election law. The law prohibits a person from contracting with another for something of value in exchange for agreeing to vote.

    Moore, a native of Flint, is touring the country and imploring "slackers" who usually don't vote to head to the polls this year, saying they could make the difference in the presidential race.

    He made stops at Michigan State University, the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Central Michigan University and Elk Rapids High School on the first leg of a 60-city pre-election tour.

    During each program, habitual nonvoters are invited on stage to pledge to vote for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. First-time student voters are offered gag prizes such as clean underwear.

    The GOP said Moore also offered students a clean dorm room, a year's supply of Tostitos and a package of Ramen noodles.

    Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County prosecutor's office, refused to comment on the matter. Calls to Moore and the other county prosecutors weren't immediately returned Tuesday.

    Well he can't buy drunks liquor on election day, I guess a grand prize for himself is an actual clean pair of underware and he thinks it will motive others as well.

    The bastard.

    Underwear, noodles, and snacks? The guy makes $100 million dollars off his propaganda movie and he's offering undies? You know, if you're going to break the law, at least break the law while flashing a little dough. Geez.
