Girl Scouts in La. hope to take bite out of "CookieCott 2014"
BATON ROUGE- Girl Scout troops in Louisiana will use a flyer to counter a movement by some conservative groups who are pushing for a ban on Girl Scout Cookie sales.
The groups have an issue with a Tweet the scout organization sent concerning Wendy Davis, an abortion advocate. The movement is called "CookieCott 2014."
"What groups seem to be wanting to do is politicize our mission," said Marianne Addy of the Girl Scouts. "The Girl Scout mission is to build girls of confidence and character, to make the world a better place. That's what we are trying to do," she said.
The annual cookie sale begins at the end of the month.
