WHERE IS SARAH HOYT’S SHOCKED FACE WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST? ‘Bipartisan’ Arizona Teacher Protest is Led by Democratic Operative. “Face of #RedforEd fight worked for Bernie alum data collection group, Clinton campaign aide’s Dem recruitment group.”

Questions were raised last week regarding the background of Noah Karvelis, a teacher who has been the face of the highly visible #RedforEd push for increased teacher salaries, after Arizona governor Doug Ducey (R.) labeled him a political operative and chose to keep him out of talks on education spending.

“What I don’t want to do is get into these political operatives’ political circus,” Ducey said, calling into question the political motives of Karvelis’s group, which says it is nonpartisan. He said he would work with “decision makers” and separate out “political activists.”

The Democratic Governors Association criticized Ducey for mislabeling the “organic, bipartisan movement” as a “political movement,” but it failed to mention the ties Karvelis has established to Democratic groups in the last two years alone.

It never fails to amaze me how much growth the Left can nurture out of Astroturf.
