NEA members: Become an Educator for Obama. Now more than ever, we need to elect a President who shares our vision for a stronger America. Do your part and pledge to be an educator for Obama today on the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education website. The website also features information on other NEA recommended candidates for federal office (Democrats and Republicans) as well as the profiles of NEA Fund members and the latest news on the election.I'm glad I dropped my membership. I did this in July after the NEA decided at their convention to endorse Obama and to raise PAC dues from $10 to $20 to put toward their support of him.
Out of curiosity, I looked at their list of "recommended candidates." It includes Gabby Giffords; should I let them know she's not running?
In Massachusetts they're supporting Markey (D), Niki Tsongas (D), and William Keating (D), among others. It's quite a list, actually.
Nope, NEA. You can keep your liberal candidates and I'll keep my money.
