New Jersey lawmakers grilled teachers union officials Thursday, weeks after the release of undercover videos that appeared to show local union representatives bragging about their ability to preserve the jobs of teachers who abuse students or drugs.

Ruiz was paraphrasing David Perry, the since-removed head of the teachers union in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, who made a similar statement in front of hidden cameras deployed by the conservative muckraking group Project Veritas.
