'Andy Spears explains how the Tennessee Legislature came to pass vouchers, after rejecting them multiple times.  There was a popular new governor promoting an unpopular idea. And there was money. DeVos money. Dark Money. Lots of it. And aides to Governor Bill Lee who had previously worked for DeVos’s American Federation for Children (and Vouchers).Now there’s an FBI investigation of the deal that went down to get this bill passed.Good grief, if the FBI investigates every rigged vote for vouchers, bypassing voters, they will have no time to investigate major crimes.'
