Hillary’s Teachers’ Union Sellout

A one-time charter school supporter, Clinton now does the bidding of the American Federation of Teachers.

The latest Labor Department financial disclosure from the American Federation of Teachers shows that in 2015–16 the teachers’ union spent $28,593,366 on political activities and lobbying. The money flowed almost exclusively leftward. In fact, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, AFT has given $76,446,797 to Democrats and liberals and just $363,000 to Republicans and conservatives since 1990. In other words, less than one half of 1 percent of the union’s political spending goes to the Right (and, in those cases, the money is typically used to support the more left-leaning of two Republicans running against each other).
