New Jersey Teacher Union Sets Sights on Senate President

New Jersey Education Association teacher union officials are attempting to relieve Senate President Steve Sweeney of his job. How much of this money is taken from teachers against their will? Andrew Seidman has the story on philly.com.

The high-profile bid by New Jersey’s largest teachers’ union to unseat Senate President Stephen Sweeney in November’s election has intensified, as political groups aligned with each side have already spent nearly $1 million on television advertisements.

No matter that it’s early August, well before most campaigns begin hitting the airwaves to try to persuade voters in state legislative races.
