Another OFA Flop: Ohio Immigration Rally Fails To Generate Support

Another OFA Flop: Ohio Immigration Rally Fails To Generate Support

One day after immigration advocates claimed a “resounding win” in the August town-halls  (because they didn’t lose), the Ohio arm of Organizing for Action (OFA) attempted to generate excitement for “comprehensive immigration reform” at an August 30 Statehouse rally.

According to Jesse Hathaway reporting for Media Trackers, they failed miserably.

Organized by OFA’s Kate Kight, the August 30 event was attended by 5 OFA interns participating in the organization’s “Summer Fellows” program. A press release indicated OFA Ohio is partnering with DREAMActivist Ohio, an illegal-immigrant advocacy group which has held a series of similar rallies making similar demands.

According to Hathaway, the event was advertised in local media and like-minded organizations, yet failed to generate any interest.

In other awkward OFA news….

The director of the president’s political arm confirmed to supporters this week that the group will not lobby on his behalf in the debate over whether the U.S. should strike Syria.

The Washington Examiner reported:

OFA Executive Director Jon Carson acknowledged in a conference call Tuesday that many of the group’s volunteers have raised the issue of Syria since Obama over the weekend announced that he would seek congressional authorization for the strike. But OFA, Obama’s most potent lobbying apparatus, has decided to sit out the Syria debate, Carson said.

Heartache…
