Texas Public School District Emails Encouraged Staff to Switch Parties to Influence GOP Primary - Just Democrats being Democrats and practicing Election Interference

Breitbart Texas obtained emails sent by Lewisville ISD (LISD) Superintendent Rogers to “LISD Staff” from a past advocacy campaign, the 2016 “Your Voice Matters,” conducted during a presidential election year.

On January 25, 2016, Rogers emailed “LISD Staff” stating, “In the coming weeks and months, you will notice our district becoming more politically active,” adding “our participation in the political process has never been more critical than it will be in the next legislative session.”

Like in recent claims, Rogers alleged “our noble profession is under attack by those who claim to have the best interest of students at heart, but seem to be working against those of us who are in the trenches each day, serving students.” He named “a great non-profit called Friends of Texas Public Schools (FOTPS),” which he stated “posted this letter to Texas teachers, and it really gets to the heart of what we are facing.”

Rogers wrote:

FOTPS said: The Texas Legislature has been working against you and your schools for decades and will continue to do what it can to undermine your ability to do your jobs in the classroom. While some of our elected representatives and senators are friendly toward public education, many are not. Their campaign contributors want vouchers and charters so they can profit from the billions invested annually in our public schools. They also want to attack your benefits such as TRS and your health insurance. That’s the simple and ugly truth.

FOTPS, an Austin-based advocacy organization, was co-founded by Scott Milder (R-Rockwall), the 2018 GOP primary challenger to incumbent Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick. Patrick handily defeated Milder on Tuesday evening. The Texas American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the state’s chapter of the nation’s second largest teachers’ union, endorsed Milder.

In 2016, Rogers provided a link in his “LISD Staff” email list for district employees to click through to “to read the full letter” FOTPS posted entitled “Open Letter to the Terrific Teachers of Texas” written by Milder and wife Leslie. In it, the Milders stated that whoever won in the GOP March 2016 primary was likely to win in the November 2016 general election. Then, they advocated that teachers switch political parties in that primary to affect the outcome:

For those of you inclined to vote in the Democratic primary to support your presidential candidate of choice, please know your vote would be less meaningful than if you vote in the Republican Primary.

The couple asserted “gerrymandering” in state elections resulted in GOP victories. The letter continued,
