Right to Work and Choice in Education PACs have similar funding sources

Education in Utah reported that one of the largest contributers to the Right to Work group running anti-bully ads is the Walton Foundation. (Hat tip: Utah Amicus)

The Walton Foundation is run by the family of the late Sam Walton. Never heard of Sam Walton?

Sam founded Walmart and Sam's Club.

Anyway, guess what one of the Walton Foundation's big causes is?

School "Choice."

Yep, that's right. The National Right to Work Foundation, which recieved $200,000 from the Walton Foundation in 2004, is in the same grouping as Hostess Employees for an All-Twinkee Diet (PCE). PCE has also recieved funds from Walton Foundation.

And you thought NRtW's ads were just coincidence....
