Dartmouth Undying Bribes Students

...with Vitamin Water and cold, hard cash. Apparently, Dartmouth Undying is paying students to campaign for the organization’s cause. Someone in my sorority sent the following e-mail out to the sorority’s e-mail list [edit: the e-mail was sent out last night, btw].
If you want to make an easy $100 bucks and do something good for the Dartmouth community you can join me in calling women Alumni with Martha Beattie (Nell Beattie 09's mom) to encourage them to vote for Dartmouth Unity Ballot in the elections for the Association of Alumni Executive Committee. The ballot is headed by John Mathias '69 (I think it's Alice '07 TriDelt's dad??) and they are wanting to end the unnecessary lawsuit against the school that is costing us millions of dollars.

I did it today and it was super easy. Hours 7-10:30 pm,
$100. All you do is read a prompt sheet and call women Alumni. Martha Beattie is a super sweet woman and bought pizza and Vitamin water for us! We are going to call again on Monday and Tuesday (same hours). If you want to help please just come to the Coldwell Banker House (yellow house across from Psi U) Mon or Tues between 7-10:30pm. If you are concerned about calling because you don't now what you are representing you can go to the org's website: dartmouthundying.org and read up on the initiatives.


I will be there for sure on Monday if you are shy and want to walk over with someone.

You can also email Ms. Beattie if you have any questions: marthabeattie76@msn.com

I heard Dartmouth Undying also bribes the postal service to deliver its mailings. It's only 43 cents per letter or so, but that adds up to some serious money when you consider the volume. Someone should investigate immediately.

You should change the headline. Bribery is a crime and refers to payment for official action. Offering freebies or paying students to do things is not bribery, and calling it that just makes you look ignorant and prejudiced, like Dartblog.

Vitamin Water is much cooler than parity. 50 Cent agrees.

Please note your headline has a typo. Someone misspelled the third word. The correct spelling is "Rewards"

Can you wash brains with vitamin water?

Dartmouth Undying's grassroots efforts flat out suck.

Katy O'Donnell she cover the cold call efforts.

Kind of like the alumni association's grassroots efforts? Byrne letter written by the Hanover Institute, positive press from past employee Malchow...

Or like Undying's Peter Saccio letter. His only contribution was the one-space indents at the beginning of each paragraph. That scholarly look almost fooled me.

I don't know, Saccio is a scholar not used to putting his name on others' words. I doubt he has the trust/gullibility of the Byrnes when it comes to pre-written public statements.

Ghost-writing isn't the same as plagiarism.
