We’ve written before about how AFSCME, the big public employee union, keeps flushing its members’ money down the political rathole in increasingly bigger chunks. This money, of course, is often used to support candidates and causes with which their members don’t agree. However, more typically, people — including AFSCME members, presumably — just don’t want their money used for political purposes, period.
Now comes the news that AFSCME has gone itself one better in its unabashed partisanship, committing at least half or more of the $17 million that a new group is raising to fight “aggressive GOP efforts to redraw political boundaries.” Wow. So now they’re in the re-districting game — a step above just lighting a match to money on races and initiatives.
Maybe one day their members will get sick enough of it all to ask for their money back, to which they are entitled under the law.
