NY State Republicans Abuse Boy Scouts on Saladino's Behalf

The Boy Scouts are such a great group of young men who give of themselves to help their communities. It is always important that they receive the accolades they deserve. They do not deserve to be used in political propaganda like the one out in the mail now. According to Cub Scout policies "Section 8 page 3 of the Policies of Cub Scouting:- The Scouting movement shall not be involved in any question of political character (ie. involving elections or administrative or legislative matters) other than color guard or 'get-out-the-vote' activities."
That didn't stop the NY State Republicans using a local Cub Scout Pack in a mailing for Joe Saladino. The scouts were planting dune grass to protect out barrier beaches and end up in a partisan mailing.
Saladino and GOP Boss Joe Mondello should be ashamed and they owe those scouts an apology.
