On the heels of Deval Patrick lowering education standards by joining the “Race to the Top” standards consortium, which is being pushed by the teachers unions, the Massachusetts Teachers Association is paying him back. Today the Bay State Future 527 finally filed their independent expenditure report for their ad that laughably tries to blame Charlie Baker for the Big Dig. Partnering on the advertisement with the Democratic Governors association is the Massachusetts Teachers Association.
Anybody that argues that unions are not fully backing Deval Patrick this cycle because he’s been “tough” with them is delusional. They will be out in full force. Already this cycle unions have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting Democratic candidates. The machine will not go down easy.
In addition the Mass Teachers Association also mailed last week an 8.5 x 11 glossy postcard against Question 3. In that post card they also spent a good deal of real estate supporting Deval Patrick and Tim Murray. (The postcard is after the fold.)
