The lying Chicago Teachers Union used to death of one of its teachers to “prove” that kids were infecting teachers with COVID, but now we’ve learned that they lied. The teacher actually drank herself to death.
Denisha Henry, 32, died in September from what Chicago Teachers Union claimed was COVID-19 caught from a student. The CTU then used that false claim to force the city to keep schools closed out of fear that kids were dangerous to the lives of teachers.
Henry, who was a teacher at Jensen Elementary Scholastic Academy in the East Garfield Park district of Chicago, died on Sept. 24. And the union used her death for all it was worth.
But now, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s report shows that Henry actually died of alcoholism, according to Chicago City Wire.
And parents are furious.
“My God, the burden they placed on those young children who lost their mothers. Telling them basically you killed your mothers by going to school,” one parent said.
“Shame on them. This proves they’ll stop at nothing to get what they want.”
The left-wing Chicago media loved the CTU’s false claims and played the story endlessly to support shutting down Chicago’s schools.
And it was all a lie.
Like everything every union says.
