The Republican National Committee (RNC) used a call center based in the Philippines to hold a media conference attacking President Obama's economic record, the Chicago Sun-Times reported today.The RNC didn't help its image by pointing out that the call was run by Verizon.
CWA Chief of Staff Ron Collins, who began his career in a Maryland-based Verizon call center, summed up RNC's move this way:Oh, I'm confident they'll eventually manage something even more hypocritical. Like defending the Bush record on jobs. He'd be the guy who got us into this economic disaster in the first place.
It’s hard to imagine anything more hypocritical than the RNC making calls about U.S. unemployment from a Verizon foreign call center.
