In These Times, a far-left publication, reports that “Sharon and Mindy,” members of the American Federation of Teachers, are virtually professional campaigners. “Last year they worked the Wisconsin recall campaigns. When their union … invited them to come to Ohio, they didn’t need to be asked twice,” the article stated. They are retired teachers from Brooklyn.

With this sort of well-organized infusion of canvassers into battleground states like Ohio, it’s amazing the polls are as close as they are purported to be. Teachers unions may be an expensive burden for school districts and the citizens they serve, but they certainly come in handy for the Democratic Party.
