NEA Accused of Misusing Funds for Politics

The Washington Times reports that the Landmark Legal Foundation accuses the National Education Association of concealing its use of millions of dollars in tax-exempt teachers’ dues and fees for political activities. The complaint said that the funds were used primarily for Democratic candidates and causes.
If these allegations are true, the actions violate a federal law that requires labor unions to report their revenues and expenditures annually to the Labor Department. As a result, the union and its leaders could be held liable for substantial civil and criminal penalties for violating the labor law.

Sounds like the NEA has some explaining to do…
