MN GOP resorts to bribing volunteers

Apparently MN Republicans are running short on volunteers. So to make up for the lack of passion for its candidates, the party is offering prizes as a bribe. MN Republican Party Chair Ron Carey writes:
The Republican Party of Minnesota is pleased to offer an unprecedented incentive program for those who help with Get Out The Vote. Anyone who shows up to phone bank or goes door to door in the final four days of the Election (November 4th-November 7th) will be entered into a drawing for the following prizes:

Grand Prize: Airfare and accommodations for two to Washington, DC. Three days, two nights, on a date of your choosing in the calendar year 2006!

Runner Up: Apple IPOD digital music player!

20 Third Place Prizes: Exclusive breakfast with Senator Norm Coleman, who will give you a sneak peak into his 2008 re-election campaign!
Frankly, I'll take honest government over a trip or an iPod any day.

Grand Prize is a trip to DC on a date of my choosing in 2006?!

Does that come with the Time Machine or with a Typo?

Is there a link from the original source available?!

That's from a MN GOP newsletter in 2006. This post is nearly a year old now, but I'm glad you found it and were amused.
