Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle says a decision by a group to bus homeless people to vote in his recall election followed by a training and recruiting session as Election Day workers was a mistake.

Forward Omaha, which opposes the mayor's recall, took three busloads of homeless people to the Douglas County Election
Commission office on Wednesday. After voting, they went to a
training and recruitment session as get-out-the-voter workers and
paid $5 for their time.

Suttle's office on Thursday issued a statement that says combining the transportation and recruitment was an "error in judgment."

Suttle's office says he told Forward Omaha not to repeat it. Suttle's office says the group will acknowledge the mistake.

The recall election is Jan. 25 but Omaha residents can vote
early.
