"AEA funds opponent of Sen. Del Marsh, foes of other supporters of Alabama Accountability Act"

AL.com reports: The state teachers' organization is fighting private school tax credits in court and the architect of the tax credits at the ballot box.

The Alabama Education Association's political action committee filed a campaign finance report showing the largest donation it gave in March was $50,000 to Democratic state Senate candidate Taylor Stewart, an Anniston attorney and son of former U.S. Sen. Donald Stewart of Anniston. Taylor Stewart is opposing Republican Sen. Del Marsh of Anniston, who was the chief architect of the Alabama Accountability Act. ...

The campaign finance report from AEA's PAC shows it gave large amounts last month to opponents of other legislators who voted for the act.

It gave $25,000 each to Republican Bruce Whitlock, a Cullman County store owner and bus driver, and former Democratic state Rep. Angelo "Doc" Mancuso, a Decatur physician. Both are running against Republican Sen. Paul Bussman of Cullman.

AEA's PAC also donated $25,000 each to Democrat Terry Jones, an educator from Hazel Green who is running against Republican Rep. Jim Patterson of Meridianville; educator Bobby Jackson of Athens, who is opposing Republican Rep. Dan Williams of Athens in the GOP primary; and Republican Ginger Fletcher, who is challenging Republican Rep. Kerry Rich of Albertville. -- AEA funds opponent of Sen.
