Congratulations OEA

From John Curry, May 12, 2013
Congratulations, OEA, you just purchased an election! Your tens of thousands of dollars contributed for glossy campaign ads and robocalls for two retired educator candidates, coupled with carefully engineered (and modified for this year's election) ballot language, ensured that the guy (Dennis Leone) who exposed the misspending, mismanagement and entitlement mentality at Ohio STRS did not get elected to the board this time 'round.
His former uncovering of the above illegal and unethical activities while in office caused the Ohio ethics convictions of 5 of your former OEA Executive Council members (and STRS board members at the time) and their resignations from the STRS board. Money really can buy happiness, can't it? At least I can sleep soundly at night.....unlike some people who shouldn't. Retired educators don't pay OEA dues but, for this one time, you sure were worried about who would represent them on the STRS board, weren't you?
