Teachers supported Prop 8 while their union opposed the measure

A report by NPR's Robert Benincasa shows that California's teachers' union was giving money to oppose Proposition 8 while members of the union were making donations to support the ban on gay marriage. "Teachers, aides and counselors in California public school systems gave about $2 to support the marriage ban for every $1 they gave to oppose it. The educators gave some $450,000 in individual contributions to advocates supporting the ban and about $210,000 to those opposing it, according to the NPR analysis." The California secretary of state recently released the campaign contribution data for Proposition 8.
