(Before It's News)

We’ve heard of money mucking up politics, but those sorts of gripes usually center on billionaires and multinantionals throwing around money to get their way. In a new twist, starving actors are being recruited to play political roles.

More than 50 actors from a Broward County acting troupe toted signs and donned costumes to demonstrate at the South Florida Water Management District on Thursday — and most knew little about the cause they were hired to espouse, the Post’s Christine Stapleton reports.

The actors banked $75 apiece for two hours of protesting against a land deal being considered by the district. The deal gives the district until October to exercise an option to buy from U.S. Sugar some 46,800 acres of land south of Lake Okeechobee. The deal could cost $500 million. Gov. Rick Scott and the district have not said if they will buy the land.

The actors Stapleton talked to weren’t familiar with the backstory. They just wanted to get paid.  morehere
