Why is the PTA playing in politics?

Article III section G of National PTA By-Laws:

"The organization or members in their official capacities shall not, directly or indirectly, participate or intervene (in any way, including the publishing or distributing of statements) in any political campaign on behalf of, or in opposition to, any candidate for public office; or devote more than an insubstantial part of its activities to attempting to influence legislation by propaganda or otherwise."

If PTA's are not supposed to play politics, why then is the Gifford Middle School PTA injecting themselves into the current battle over the Budget Repair Bill?

They claim to only be passing on information, but that information is from pro union anti Walker zealots like Jack Senzig.  His rhetoric is shown just beneath this posting.
