On Friday, I ran the post Mafia-style President Pays Back His SEIU Muscle, Puts the Screws to Calif. It detailed the latest Obama Chicago style extortion. Obama is blackmailing the state of California, threatening the state to withdraw 7 billion in stimulus if in their bankrupted state they do not pay off the union SEIU. (More here)
This is corruption on an immense national scale.
The Service Employees International Union, which represents the workers, said in a statement that it had asked the Obama administration to intervene.
SEIU and Obama on Obama’s own website:
“SEIU’s members are temperamentally suited to Obama; he is a longtime friend of Chicago’s SEIU Local 880 and worked closely with the union as an organizer and later as a state legislator.”
SEIU paid for door-to-door canvassing for Obama, voter identification and registration, phonebanks…an expenditures document.
Atlas reader Laura S. provided updated figures for the obscene sums that SEIU spent on getting Obama elected. I under reported the $13,355,389.00 in dirty money paid to Obama during the election.
All the figures are right off the FEC site.
SEIU spent $18,818,358.97 through December of 2008 on behalf of Obama. Source here.
The $13 million dollar figure was only through August/2008--actually SEIU spent $18,818,358.97 through December of 2008 on behalf of Obama. Total on FEC site. I did not add it myself.
