(Newser) – The New York City Board of Elections, headed up by a man Tim Robbins has termed a "corrupt scumbag," is reaching out to the prickly actor with an offer he might well resist—turn his Election Day voting tantrum into a civics lesson. TMZ reports that the board is inviting the Bull Durham actor to produce a public-service announcement on voter participation. No comment from camp Robbins.

“We recognize and applaud that passion Mr Robbins exhibited," said the elections board in a statement.
