Hard Left Teachers Union President Karen Lewis Owns Three Homes
Karen Lewis, the grotesque personification of teachers unions who has managed to politicize even mathematics, has it in for the wealthy. Here she is spewing demagogic communist lies at an Occupy Wall Street infestation:
Astute observers will note that it is not public institutions that create wealth, but private citizens. If her point of view had any validity, “the rich” would be taxing the government, not the other way around.
Lewis’s politically correct ideology has put her in a position to run for Mayor of Chicago against Rahm Emanuel, the former top Obamunist also known as “Dead Fish.” But speaking of the rich:
She has ripped Mayor Rahm Emanuel as a tool of corporate Chicago, labeled him “Mayor 1%” and described herself as “not egotistical or rich.”
Lewis isn’t as wealthy as Emanuel, a multimillionaire who made his fortune during a short stint as an investment banker. But she makes more than $200,000 a year and has an ownership interest in three homes, records show.
That includes vacation homes in Hawaii and in the upscale “Harbor Country” area of southwestern Michigan, where Emanuel has a second home, property records show.
Like all rich leftists, Lewis screams for “the rich,” which in practice often means the middle class, to pay more taxes. Even if they have to pay more themselves, they still come out ahead, as their Marxist posturing dupes envious idiots into elevating them to positions of vast wealth and privilege.
Lewis is reportedly leading Emanuel in the polls. Just when you think moonbats could not possibly make politics in this country any more disgusting and absurd…
