Kaptur demands DeVos pay $5.3M Ohio fine

U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur joined two of her Democratic congressional colleagues Tuesday in calling on education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos to pay a $5.3 million fine owed to Ohio she has headed.

Mrs. DeVos of Grand Rapids, Mich., an advocate for charter schools and vouchers, is awaiting a Senate confirmation hearing Jan. 17.

Miss Kaptur (D., Toledo), along with Reps. Joyce Beatty of Columbus and Marcia Fudge of Warrensville Heights near Cleveland spoke on the House floor demanding that Mrs. DeVos pay the fines levied by the Ohio Elections Commission.

Mrs. DeVos was a chairman of and contributor to the Virginia-based All Children Matter Political Action Committee. That PAC and an Ohio subsidiary were found to have given campaign contributions that violated donation limits of $10,000 per candidate.

1. She can certainly afford it.

A paragon of GOP-style integrity.

2. Good for these women for shining a light on this;

I think everyone should know about this. Another black mark against her couldn't hurt.

3. According to Thom Hartmann, there are reports of her threatening

 

politicians to support her views to increase privatization of public schools. Her threat? If they did not agree with her she would run candidates against them. [Could she afford that? She's a freaking billionaire. Sure she can afford it.]

I tell people a lot, the worst form of abuse is educational neglect -- and that's what she is promoting.
