Sarah Palin weighs in on Issue 2 debate

According to the Huffington Post, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is endorsing Issue 2 ahead of Tuesday’s vote in Ohio. 

Friday, the former Republican candidate for Vice President used Facebook to show her support for the measure. 

“As a proud former union member and the wife, daughter, and sister of union members, I’m encouraging you to learn the facts about Issue 2 in Ohio…To the hard working, patriotic, selfless union brothers and sisters in Ohio and throughout our country: I believe that Issue 2 is needed reform. It will help restore fairness to Ohio taxpayers and help balance the budget,” Palin wrote.

Earlier this week, civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson appeared at an event in Toledo asking voters to vote no on Issue 2.

Those hoping to repeal the law say it unfairly curtails the collective bargaining rights of public employees.
