CHICAGO – Could the Chicago Teachers Union’s belligerent, foul-mouthed leader become the next mayor of the Windy City?
It’s a question that supporters of Karen Lewis could soon explore as the union prepares “to put big bucks behind a candidate for the 2015 mayor’s race,” NBC Chicago reports.
“CTU members are encouraging her to run, and while she said she won’t do it, sources expect supporters to form an exploratory committee anyway,” according to the news station. “CTU is even asking its members to double their contributions to their political action committee as the union eyes not just the mayor’s race but City Council and statewide races too.”
Chicago Mayor Karen Lewis is a scary thought. The union boss has repeatedly demonstrated that the financial welfare of the CTU and its members are her top priority, not students or citizens.
