Connecticut Common Cause’s Disturbing Research on the 2018 Election

December 23, 2018

In a post yesterday, Diane Ravitch provided a near verbatim description of an in-depth analysis of the impact of Charter PACs on the Connecticut mid-term elections at the state level, noting the names of the individual PAC donors and the candidates who benefitted from the campaign donations offered by the PACs.

Two things I find unsettling:

First, the donors all reside in extremely affluent communities, communities who would no more offer choice to their parents than they would allow high-density low income housing in their community.

Secondly is the number of candidates with “D” behind their name. Virtually all the candidates who benefitted from the largesse of the PACs are Democrats…

And this leads me to the most unsettling question of all:

Will the Democrats be able to find a candidate in 2020 who is not beholden to the venture capitalists, tech moguls, and billionaires who want to “reform” and “personalize” our schools?

Alas… I doubt it….
