Another look at Prop 32 - Follow the Money

Myself, I like that. I like spending my own money, how I choose, and when I choose.
The dollars flowing into both sides in the debate is even more fascinating. Look at the Prop 32 webpage from PBS station KCET in Los Angeles
and you'll find that close to $28M have been spent opposing Prop 32, and of that $28M, $9.1M - about a third of the total - has come from the California Teachers' Union. A little math here (thanks to a teacher, by the way). The CTU has 325,000 members, so the $9.1M works out to $28 per teacher.
I wonder if this $28 per teacher was handled through payroll deduction?
