Adam Haber is running for the NY State Senate on Long Island. He lives in a district with great public schools and supports them. The State Senate is controlled by the GOP, who pass pro-charter, pro-voucher, anti-teacher legislation So it is very important for the Senate Republicans to beat back anyone who might threaten their tenuous control, especially a supporter of the public schools attended by 90% of the children in the state. The GOP Senators are flush with cash from Wall Street and the usual billionaires who want low taxes and charter schools. His opponents don't want  a strong supporter of public schools, who might disrupt their anti-public school cabal. So what do they do to strike out at Adam Haber?
