The Virginia Education Association is under fire from state Republicans after an e-mail circulated by the Association called on teachers to influence their students to vote for Democrat Party presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama.

The so-called Obama Blue Day e-mail reads, There are people out there not yet registered. You teach some of them, the Sept. 25 e-mail reads. Others, including our members, remain on the fence! Its time for us to come together, voice our unity, because we make a difference!

Lets make Obama Blue Day a day of Action! the e-mail continues. Barack the vote!

While VEA President Kitty Boitnott insists the e-mail was not meant to encourage teachers to use their classrooms for partisan political purposes, Virginia Republican Party Communications Director Gerry Scimeca calls the move a breach of public trust on many levels.
