BLOG: Calling All Coffee Drinkers

Check out this coffee related Election Day story from Slate.com

‘Starbucks is halting its much-publicized plan to give voters free coffee today. It turns out that offering “gifts” constitutes a felony under election law in many states. In Georgia, for example, “Any person who gives or receives, or offers to give or receive, or participates in the giving or receiving of money or gifts for the purpose of registering as a voter, voting, or voting for a particular candidate in any primary or election shall be guilty of a felony” (via the Atlanta Journal Constitution). But the coffee chain has found a way to foil the election Grinches—they’re extending the freebie to everyone who orders a tall brewed coffee. Alas, no caramel lattes. … 10:50 a.m.’

Is anyone out there trying to get a free cup of coffee?  I guess you don’t need the sticker after all?  Fan out and see what’s going on.
