“The ad, paid for by the OEA and brought to our attention by an outraged teacher, claims Bill Sizemore is the author and lead proponent of the Open Primary/Measure 65.... Linking us to Sizemore is blatantly false, cynical, and offensive. I can't believe OEA's political bosses are so afraid of losing power that they would knowingly lie and mislead their own members.”
“False, say-anything-to-win, scare tactics have no place in Oregon politics.... We're trying to open up the political process with Measure 65 so that all voters are treated fairly and equally. Such tactics, especially by Oregon's largest, most powerful union, illustrate precisely the type of problem that we are trying to solve.”
Calls to OEA have not yet been returned. We'll update this post with any response.
