Rich? Hate Public Schools? Buy Ad Blitzes To Try to Convince Unwillingly Texans to use School Vouchers

Leininger, who else? Let's review. A couple of weeks ago, a company owned by Dr Leininger of San Antonio, had a big judgement against it after losing a lawsuit and it was discovered that Bill Cerveha, who not only was treasurer of Tom DeLay's TRMPAC, but also on the board of the Teacher's Retirement System had purchased more than 80,000 shares of stock in the doctor's company... and the stock fell, naturally, due to the judgment.

But apparently Leinginer has some deep pockets. He has funded a $400,000 radio and billboard ad push school vouchers, despite the fact that the public doesn't want them.

He tried last year to unseat several House Republicans who had voted against vouchers, spending $2.5 million but defeating only two of five incumbents.

"I guess if you have plenty of money to spend, you don't have to take no for an answer," said Kathy Miller, president of the Texas Freedom Network, which opposes vouchers.
