Metro to Driver: Nuh-uh.

You might have seen the big Style-section story yesterday about a Metrobus Driver who liked to get his passengers involved in politics. Metro, as it turns out, was not amused. They have placed the driver on administrative leave while they sort out their options. Turns out he wasn’t just pushing community-involvedness, but rather his favorite candidate, Vince Orange.

Perhaps it’s time for Bus Driver Davis to have a chat with his friends:

Davis became involved in this year’s election at the urging of Orange supporter Al-Malik Farrakhan, a leader of the anti-violence group Cease Fire . . . Don’t Smoke the Brothers Inc.

Or maybe Councilman Orange has a job for him?

    As much as I think we need to have more Get-Out-The-Vote drives (and drivers), I’m glad that Metro took exception to his Orange-centric promotions.

    “Register to vote” or “Vote today” is good, “Vote for X” spoken by a taxpayer supported service provider on the job ain’t.
