More on allegation that NCAE is “arm of Democratic Party”

One of the most interesting and ironic charges leveled by House Speaker Thom Tillis and the other defenders of the secret legislative session the other morning is the assertion that the NC Association of Educators is “an arm of the Democratic Party.”

But, of course, as NCAE Government Relations manager Brian Lewis noted the other day, the express purpose  of the bill targeting NCAE (according to Tillis himself) was to punish them for going after Democratic legislators who voted to cut public education.

As Greg Flynn notes in the comments in a post below, there are tons of examples in which NCAE has bestowed contributions on Republicans.

Here are his most recent comments:

In 2008 the NCAE PAC gave money to Dale Folwell, Robert Grady, the Republican House Majority Committee, and the Committee to Elect Republican Women to name a few spotted at first glance.

Here’s more:
Fletcher Hartsell
Jerry Tillman
Larry Brown
Kenny Furr
Laura Wiley
Karen Ray
Larry Hale
Shirley Blackburn Randleman
Harry Brown
Bonner Stiller
Mitchell Setzer
Sidney M Sandy
Jean Preston
Pat B Hurley
Linda P Johnson
Richard Stevens

If NCAE is “an arm of the Democratic Party,” they sure seem to enjoy hitting themselves in the face.
