Are you a union member trying to find out information of the criminal actions and shady financial dealings of your union? Well don’t expect Obama and his toady in the Labor Secretary’s office, Hilda Solis, to help you uncover any illegalities perpetrated by your union bosses.
Solis’ department has just announced that it is suspending the stringent reporting requirements that labor unions must by law satisfy to assure that their financial dealings are legal and above-board. That’s right, unions have just been given a free pass for criminal actions by this president.
This is proof that political donations are the key to get away with crime. So, yes Virginia, crime does pay… at least in Obama’s Washington.
Here is the notice that recently appeared on the website of the U.S. Department of Labor:
NOTE:… Accordingly, OLMS will refrain from initiating enforcement actions against union officers and union employees based solely on the failure to file the report required by section 202 of the Labor-Management and Reporting Disclosure Act (LMRDA), 29 U.S.C. § 432, using the 2007 form, as long as individuals meet their statutorily-required filing obligation in some manner. OLMS will accept either the old Form LM-30 or the new one for purposes of this non-enforcement policy.
Solis’s office is claiming that the previous LM2 form was just too hard on those innocent, kindly union thugs and criminals, so she’s decided to just forget the whole thing. Capone’s Chicago couldn’t have had better friends in high places.
… Oh, and guess where Obama and most of his closest advisers are from? Could it be… mmmm… CHICAGO?
