CONCORD, CA — Former Republican turned Democrat, Tim Grayson, has been forced to hire fake supporters to perform in his upcoming political ads.  Grayson is only hiring NON-UNION actors to perform in his TV spots.

Here’s the listing for Grayson’s casting call:

“Tues. 9/6 Females Non-union Background Female / 25 to 75 / All Ethnicities, AfricanAm, Am-Indian, Asian, Caucasian, East-Ind, Hispanic, MidEastern, Mixed, PacificIsland Non-union females 25-75 to portray the following roles – Patients, nurse, counselors, Moms, business women, store owner. Must have your own transportation to Concord. Must be avail Tues. 9/6 early morning to late evening. Pay is $175/10 hours. Only submit if you are fully available. Note if you have any experience in roles above.”

“Tues. 9/6 Males non-union Background Male / 30 to 55 / All Ethnicities, AfricanAm, Am-Indian, Asian, Caucasian, East-Ind, Hispanic, MidEastern, Mixed, Pacific Island Non-union males 30-55 to portray the following roles – Teamsters, Construction workers, lab tech, businessmen, Youth counselor, Police officer. Must have your own transportation to Concord. Must be avail Tues. 9/6 early morning to late evening. Pay is $175/10 hours. Only submit if you are fully available. Note if you have any experience in the above roles.”

“First Grayson can’t find real supporters to appear in his ads, now we learn he’s refusing to pay the actors who pretend to be his supporters a fair wage. If this is how he treats actors, just think how he’ll treat the rest of our community if he’s elected,” said Mae Torlakson’s campaign consultant John Shallman.

“Tim Grayson is a phony. He wants Republicans to think he’s Republican. He wants Democrats to think he’s a Democrat—even though he’s the pastor of an extremist church that believes that homosexuality is a sin and opposes abortion rights for women,” Shallman added.

In a further development, Shallman has called for Tim Grayson to prove that he is, in fact Tim Grayson, and not a non-union actor hired to play Tim Grayson. “For all we know, the real Tim Grayson is out playing golf with Big Tobacco and the billionaires bankrolling his campaign,” says Shallman. “That’s why we’re demanding documentation of his authenticity, especially when it comes time to debate. Under the circumstances, a polygraph test or fingerprint analysis should suffice, but we’ll settle for a note from his acting coach.”
