Rep. Hasner: Taking From Teachers, Giving to Jewish Museum

We didn't set out to make this Pick on Adam Hasner Week here at the Juice, but after Monday's heads-up that the Jewish state representative from Delray Beach was supporting a controversial anti-Islam conference, we stumbled across this item from the St. Pete Times showing that Hasner introduced an amendment that would take $62,979 from the budget for Florida's Excellent Teaching program and shift it into the budget for a Holocaust museum.

The Dale Hickam Excellent Teaching Program gives bonuses to teachers who go out of their way to obtain a challenging National Board Certification and who mentor other teachers. The Florida Holocaust Museum is in St. Petersburg. 

According to the news site, the amendment passed 96-13.
