Good roundup here from Judd of the constellation of right-wing groups in play here.
Another major organization he mentions in the piece, "Fight for Schools," is headed by Ian Prior, a political operative who previously worked at the NRCC, Karl Rove's American Crossroads, the McConnell-allied Senate Leadership Fund, and the Trump DOJ… Image
Fox News regularly tries to pass off GOP activists as regular concerned parents. Yesterday they repeatedly featured the head of "Educators for Youngkin" as a "Fairfax County Parent."…

After 25 years, this is the best Fox News segment of all time.
For four years, these idiots provided the president of the United States with his morning briefing, shaping his worldview and the federal policymaking process.
Speaking of Fox anniversaries, Tuesday marked 13 years since Hannity hosted a lunatic infamous for calling a judge a "crooked, slimy Jew, who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race" to make wild claims about Obama and Bill Ayers…
