Emanuel Ally Continues Post-Strike Attack On CTU

By Chuck Sudo in News on Sep 20, 2012 1:45PM

Bruce Rauner, the venture capitalist and adviser to Rahm Emanuel who blasted the Chicago Teachers Union during a speech earlier this week, appeared on WTTW's Chicago Tonight
Wednesday to discuss the recently ended strike with CTU Vice President Jesse Sharkey.

Rauner, a potential GOP candidate for governor, didn't back down from his comments that CTU leadership was protecting bad teachers; said polls showing parent support of the strike was indication of the union's successful "marketing campaign;" and deflected repeated questions from segment moderator Carol Marin if his beliefs on busting the teachers union extended to collective bargaining, in general.

Frankly we're surprise Rauner didn't call Marin a union sympathizer for wearing a red blazer. The full segment is below.
