Gore Campain Staffer Jumps Ship, Joins Protest

by Alex Chrisman-Unlawful Assembly Friday, Aug. 18, 2000 at 12:25 PM

A worker with the Gore-Liberman campain quits and joins the street protesters

Something must have went off in the mind of a Gore staffer this Monday, something that caused him to take a look at the real record of Al Gore.
"I was so brainwashed by the Gore lie that I never thought to look past the smoke and mirrors," says the ex-staffer who is still afraid to give up his name.
He says that his intail problem with Gore began with the way he was ordered to stick to "fact sheets" given to him. He was never allowed to think outside of the sheets.
"They really do turn you into a Gore-bot," he says. Soon after these thoughts went through his mind, he went to one of the protests, the Uwa march and discovered the truth about Al Gore.
Since that time, he has been to just about every march, and his outlook on the movement is now positve. He's seen an officer of the LAPD kick an innocent in the face with his boot, and he has seen the "pigs" turn Los Angeles into a police state overnight.
Before working for Gore, he was a protest leader at high school, so he says he knows "both sides of the fence." Now that he knows the truth about Gore, he is going to try to work for the Nader camp.
