Some teachers, however, see it as ploy to intimidate.

The GOP declined to say how many requests it has sent or for whom, but the Louisville Courier-Journal reports at least some are directed at teachers who unsuccessfully ran for office in November’s election as Democrats.

Republican Party of Kentucky spokesman Tres Watson said the requests weren’t meant to intimidate. He says they are about “information gathering, whether government resources are used for political activity, and how widespread it is.”
