Broward County PBA holds party to leave the Republican Party over anti-union changes led by Florida's Republican governor and legislatureNext month the Broward County Police Benevolent Association is holding a "Party to Leave the Party" -- an event coordinated with the Supervisor of Elections where police officers and the general public can switch their voter registrations from Republican to Democratic or Independent.
The reason for the switch? The association, which serves as the bargaining union for the county's law enforcement officers, is unhappy with the leadership of Governor Rick Scott and the results of the past legislative session, including changes to the Florida Retirement System that will require the workers to pay more of their own wages into retirement savings.
The PBA may be a union, but it's not traditionally a bunch of liberals. "You'd be surprised," says Broward PBA President Patrick Hanrihan. "I think most of our police officers and stuff are Republicans." Well, until the party-switching party, that is.

The union I was forced to contribute to while a sworn officer (closed shop) was embarrassing to a lot of us for their open liberal bias, same people they supported were screwing us thru their ACLU support and other social engineering. . I was invited to a local FOP (recruiting) event earlier this year. I checked out where the FOP PAC money went, and chose to turn the invite down.

Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.

I would dare say (without having the numbers) that a large majority of the police officers in unions are republican/conservative while the union group is democrat.

Yep. Unions are finally having karma catch up with them.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
