Sure your Union dues only go to support candidates if you wish.... Sure... [url]http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,56835,00.html[/url] [b]"WASHINGTON — The National Education Association is crying foul play after a Washington state judge slapped the country's largest teachers union with an $800,000 fine for failing to show up for court on charges that it was illegally spending members' dues on politics. In the 2002 election cycle, the NEA PAC has given $578,000 to Democrats and $52,000 to Republicans. It gave $1.6 million out of $1.7 million spent in the 2000-2001 election cycle on Democrats."

Kinda old news here in WA, The WA NEA spent a S#!+ load of $$ on advertising to get a referendum or whatever to get raises for teachers. Needless to say it failed miserably ! Not much sympthy for someone who makes an average $ 45 k + and works 9 months out of the year when a majority of WA residents make a lot less a year working their asses off.....and have too send there kids to bad NEA controlled public schools.

Uh . . . what are you talking about?? The WEA's initiative to raise teachers' pay rates PASSED. Yet another reason to get the hell out of this stinking state. The people living here have never met a tax increase they didn't like.

Government employees are guilty of a felony for unionizing in this state.
