NEA supports removal of staight-party lever… no, really!

Ian Donnis has reported that Bob Walsh, the Executive Director of the NEA has come out against the master lever in this year’s election.

Republicans and other critics of the Democratic-controlled General Assembly tend to be the sharpest critics of the master lever, the device that enables voters to uniformly support  the  candidates of a single party. So it is something of a man-bites-dog story when Robert Walsh, executive director of the National Education Association Rhode Island, opposes using the master lever this November.

Representative Sue Story is heading a group to help eliminate the lever as well. Is it too much to ask that voters actually think about each person they vote for?
