Is it time yet to stop pretending that the Jeffco recall effort is anything but a naked political ploy? While the registered agents for Jeffco United
for Unions for Democrats for Action political committee are Wendy McCord and Sally Chaffee, the registered agent for the Jeffco United for Action Committee as a business on the Secretary of State’s website is Martha Tierney of the law firm Tierney Paul Lawrence. Tierney is perhaps best known as the lawyer for the Colorado Democratic Party. (see right)
Still think this recall effort is all about the kids?
Interestingly, when we checked another Jeffco astroturf group, Support Jeffco Kids, it also is registered to this law group’s previous iteration, Heizer Paul, which shares TPL’s address at 2401 15th Street, Suite 300, Denver. Heizer Paul also used to be the home of Blueprint villian and liberal superlawyer, Marc Grueskin. Support Jeffco Kids VOTE is fronted by Jeffco PTA’s foulest mouth, Shawna Fritzler, who has been an advocate for the recall since the beginning. It looks like we were not that far off when we alleged that the Support Jeffco Kids fundraiser was going to paying consultants’ bills since the same legal teams are running both organizations. (see below)
And, really, if the recall is receiving help from the Democratic Party, it only makes sense. After all, the Democratic Party owes various teachers unions a lot for election help over the past 20 years – nearly $12 million in help to be exact.
But, let’s call a spade a spade. This recall has nothing to do with kids, teachers, or education and everything to do with the viability of the teachers union moving forward. It’s too bad the pro-recall folks can’t just be honest about their intentions. Also, again, we ask the question, how can the union be negotiating in good faith when it’s attempting to recall three of the school board members? (Answer: It’s can’t.)
I don't think you have proven anything here, except that some parents in JeffCo. are highly educated and care about the education their kids get. The recall is parent driven. I know it is hard for some of you here to believe that it's not okay to bully school children or parents and that how the BOE treats people and how they obey the policies and laws matters. It's easy to make this political and accept money from Americaned For Prosperty. You are all very good at that. It's harder to find actual people, you know parents, to stand up and say they approve of the behavior and decisions of the BOE3. Anyone can make a deceptive video and run it a million times. It takes more than that, a lot more, to run a school district successfully.
On a day where two polls show trump as the leading gop candidate, let's just let that speak for itself
You mean the wingnuts on the other side of the aisle? Or do you believe only the right has wingnuts?
I'm unclear why the takeover as a clear political ploy/agenda is okay, and can be clearly driven and supported by the wing nuts, but when the other side finally wakes up and responds, that's a problem.
