The ethically challenged Eric Fresen brings back the voucher bill
I had hoped to write about a senate that was becoming moderate and one that looked at facts and evidence and considered fairness to make their decisions, what with the watering down of a charter bill that gave away public resources and the withdraw of the public school kneecapping voucher bill but Eric Fresen of Miami made that impossible.
Eric Fresen whose sister and brother in law run a huge charter chain and who routinely votes on legislation designed not to help kids but to enrich his family brought back the voucher bill all be it though without the sales tax component.
It remains to be seen if the voucher bill will go anyway again or not. Don Geatz senate president has said repeatedly it is dead without accountability measures, something Fresen obviously thinks is only for public schools and other people, not himself or private schools that take public money.
