Ohio Democrat Party operative and union boss captain Kyle McDermott shared the following picture a ‘Right to Work’ training course today on twitter. Not only was there a lack of diversity, but there was probably a lack of truth too.
One of the most powerful interest groups in education and labor, the National Education Association, gave $15-MILLION to advocacy groups in 2011-2012. Almost one-third of that money ($4,718,000) went to fund the Ohio Democratic Party and the liberal super PAC We Are Ohio.
The problem? The NEA used the dues money they forced members to pay, to insdead pay the Ohio Democratic Party, instead of the union’s federal PAC.
Not all NEA members are Democrats. In fact, according to the NEA’s own “Status of the American Public School Teacher 2000-2001,” only 45 percent of public school teachers identified as Democrats. A lare number of union members (29%) said they did “not trust” the union.
The Democrats and their union boss friends like Kyle McDermott are trying to whip up excitment over nothing. The primary focus of Republicans is to create jobs. Period.
Instead of joining to help, the Ohio Democratic Party and union boss Kyle McDermott seem to be spreading lies in an effort to corrupt and take advantage of union members for their selfish political interests.
