An organization called “Illinoisans for Growth and Opportunity” took out full page ads in both the Sun-Times and Tribune attacking Chicago teachers for rejecting the cut-filled contract offer at the end of January.
This organization of wealthy Democrats is led by Greg Goldner, who ran Emanuel’s first campaign for Congress in 2002 and who owns a company that markets red-light cameras across the country. A billionaire Houston couple, the Arnolds, is the group’s biggest donor. John Arnold made his fortune operating a hedge fund and working as a “trader” for Enron!
So what do these parasites have to do with Chicago schools? Simple: they want to steal the money needed for our children’s education.
Well, they can get out of our business and slide right back into the slimy holes they crawled out of!
