  •  The Dems in AL are powerless (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The Democratic party in AL is powerless and the traditional allies of the party have been hammered since the GOP won massively in 2010.  The teacher's union, which was once the most powerful group in Alabama politics, is now the punching bag of the GOP.  They got rid of teacher tenure, they have mandated school calendars, and they most recently enacted a law that will give millions to private schools at the expense of public schools.  The GOP has decimated public education because in part the AEA has been public enemy number 1 for years for the GOP and the Democrats in Alabama are powerless to stop them.
