Democrats vs. the unions
Thursday, Mar 20, 2014
* Scott Cisek, the executive director of the Cook County Democratic Party, was none too pleased with the Chicago Teachers Union this week…
The CTU was, of course, involved in the race to defeat several party-slated candidates, including Rep. Toni Berrios, the daughter of the county party chairman.
* Jerry Morrison handles campaigns for SEIU, which also worked to defeat Rep. Berrios. Morrison fired back…
* Cisek’s retort…
Obviously, this split is gonna take a while to heal, particularly if Berrios remains chairman.
But I’d have to agree with Morrison that publicly criticizing a major and influential union after the election is over is probably not the best way to go here.
