Moore’s offer to coeds draws Republican fire

SHARE Moore’s offer to coeds draws Republican fire

Republicans say filmmaker Michael Moore should be prosecuted for offering underwear, potato chips and Ramen noodles to college students in exchange for their promise to vote.

Moore, a Michigan native, 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. Moore, who is scheduled to speak at UVSC on Oct. 20, has made stops at three Michigan universities as part of a 60-city pre-election tour.

During each program, habitual nonvoters are invited onstage to pledge to vote. 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.
