Dear Sir and Brother ,
I am writing to tell you Bob Fitch article
is closer to the truth than you might think. I am a 30 year member
of LIUNA who nothing surprises.
When they beat people at the convention there
could be no denying it was happening. Now they bring in people
like John Sweeney AFL-CIO Leader and the actress Pamela Reed,
Civil Rights Activist, Jesse Jackson and Politicians like Richard
Gephart, to campaign for them and legitimize their bullshit.
They don't need guns or violence anymore
at conventions. They have a bigger gun than ever. A direct pipeline
to the Whitehouse and the United States Justice Department. The
Clinton administration and the Democratic Party have been running
interference for MOB union leaders in exchange for big political
contributions since they took office. You ever heard of Harold
Ickes from New York? He was the MOB's ticket into the White House.
Trumka, Carey, Coia, political scandals ring any bells.
I am going cut it short, violence is still
going on in LIUNA today and elections are still being rigged today.
And for you to suggest that what we have now is better than nothing
You sound to me like a hack for the Democratic
Party. I suggest before you write anymore about LIUNA you research
your facts. Coia didn't institute a reform program, he cut a deal
to give the appearance of a reform program to keep his ass out
