I got a call from the government today offering me a job. I took it.
To set the stage, here’s what Falcon wrote at Birther Report a few days back:
Please discuss your 150 dollar a year Obama stipend for running interference. We all want to know why you are paid less than an intern. Those were your words.
I frankly was puzzled by that remark because I don’t get a stipend from Obama, much less would have said so. I had to search BR comments to figure out what he meant. The context was someone saying they wished they could see my W2 form. I replied:
My W2 for 2014 shows $150 in wages, from being a Poll Manager in the 2014 general election. That’s all my earned income.
And as happens so often in this birther business, a coincidence occurred. This afternoon I got a call from the County Elections Commission asking me to work the polls for the upcoming November 3 general election. I agreed.
