HAMILTON TWP, N.J. — The plot thickens, Save Jerseyans.
Hours after Project Veritas published a video featuring a man, which James O’Keefe’s organization alleges is the Hamilton Township (Mercer County, New Jersey) Education Association president, seeming to explain the steps which the teacher’s union could take to protect a teacher accused of physically abusing or threatening a student?
The man — Association President David R. Perry — has reportedly been suspended.
That’s according to a report from NJ.com.
The controversial Veritas guerrilla journalism operation is publishing new undercover videos as the opening salvo in a national sting series covering teachers unions and alleged corruption.
A second New Jersey-based video dropped on Thursday featuring a second individual — allegedly the Union City Education Association President — stating that a teacher accused of hitting a student would be “fine.”
“The only witness is the scumbag kid… he’s got a record,” the alleged union leader says.
At another point in the conversation, the woman holds up a file concerning a Union City teacher accused of having sexual relations with a student, whispering “you’re not going to jail.”
That union honcho has also now been suspended.
