Anti-West group pulls ad offering $10-$12 an hour to help build ‘movement’by George Bennett | March 28th, 2012
The ad by Stand Up Florida sought canvassers and team leaders to work for five weeks to help build “a movement of people demanding that politicians represent people not corporate interests” in northern Palm Beach County and Martin and St. Lucie counties — the area where West is running in a newly drawn congressional district.
The ad was pulled from Craigslist, but not before conservative blogger Javier Manjarres saved and posted a copy on his Shark Tank site, and accused the group of being an “AstroTurf leftist organization.”
The contact in the Craigslist ad is Lynne Purvis, a Lake Worth activist who gained attention in 2004 when she and another woman ran topless through a Scripps Research Institute luncheon at The Breakers with “Nature Yes” and “Biotechnology No” written on their backs.
Reached by phone this morning, Purvis said she didn’t immediately have time to talk.
Despite the group’s anti-corporate sentiments, its address is listed as a suite on Corporate Way in West Palm Beach.
