The Los Angeles Times reports that the campaign of former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is funded almost entirely by billionaire charter supporters.

Reed Hastings, who once expressed his wish to see every local school board extinguished, has given the candidate $7 Million. Hastings want every school to be a charter.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently gave the candidate $1.5 million.

If Villaraigosa is elected, the state board will greenlight every charter application. Oversight and accountability for charters is currently lax to minimal. Under Villaraigosa, they would disappear. The scams and frauds would have a picnic with taxpayers’ money. That’s what Hastings, Bloomberg, Broad, and Riordan are paying for.
