This is what Pat Sajak was talking about

Thursday, Blue Virginia fussed about Pat Sajak's comments about government workers and their participation in the voting process.
Today, comes the news that the biggest outside spenders in this campaign are - government worker unions.
Over at Ace, Drew says:
If I were Tom Friedman for a day and I could wish for some totalitarian measure to be imposed on the US, I'd wish for a way to make public employee unions illegal or at least prevent them from spending on campaigns. There's something deeply corrupting about employees bribing their managers (politicians) to shovel the money of the owners (citizens) to them.

Can we cut government by the amount of dues being used to pay for campaign ads?
It's a real fine place to start.
