Obama campaign requiring volunteering for Invesco tickets

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Obama campaign had said that volunteering wouldn't be required to get tickets to the acceptance speech at Invesco. But Westword reports, that isn't the case:

The message she received implied that tickets would only be going to the first people to finish their volunteer duties. It was so convincing that she went straight to her local Campaign for Change office last night to get her first three hours in. Everybody she talked to was also a first-time volunteer, hoping to earn an Invesco ticket. Clever campaigning.
