Gail Robinson commented on Bloomberg's pro-moderate PAC runs at the Tea Party, gets mixed resultsBloomberg -- personally it seems, not Independence PAC -- gave a whopping $200,000 in support of three education initiatives in Idaho -- weakening teachers and their unions, instituting merit pay based on test scores and promoting on-line learning. This was the second largest donation to the PAC pushing these measures and the largest from outside Idaho. All three propositions went down to resounding defeat, with two-thirds of the state's voters rejecting the one on on-line learning.
