 Weingarten Goes for the Conservative Vote

There’s a “hostile anti-union climate in our city–and especially at the D.O.E.” according to campaign literature from Randi Weingarten, who is running for re-election as the president of the United Federation of Teachers.

Her opponent in the race, according to Weingarten’s literature is a group that is “running on a combined slate headed by militant Socialist Kit Wainer,” who she labels “The Man With No Plan.”
