    Election Panel Dismisses Complaint Against SEIU, Clears Way for Union to Amass War Chest

    Despite a finding by the Federal Election Commission's general counsel that the Service Employees International Union violated election law when it required local affiliates to contribute to its political action fund, the FEC's full board quietly voted to overrule its staff attorney and dismissed the original complaint -- clearing the way for the union to squeeze its locals to amass a $9 million war chest for the next election.

    Is there any action sufficiently vile that if a democrat were to do it for electoral advantage, you would condemn it?

    Is there anything that SEIU, ACORN or any likeminded organization would do that you wouldn't condemn?

    Having six dollars of each person's union dues going into the PAC fund? I don't see that as a problem. What is "unprincipled" about that?

    You mistake my allegiance. It's not to the Democratic Party.

    My allegiance lies with these organizations - that I've worked with hundreds of times before - that have been unfairly demonized by those on the right who are trying to silence them.

    I suppose it depends on who you think owns the six dollars..is it considered a bribe or a pay-off?

    (where did you get that 6 dollar figure)

    Yes it is. In this case it is working exactly as planned, with upmost skill & senority.

    From your link....



    The problem here is that you guys take anything against SEIU or ACORN as absolute fact - no matter where the complaint comes from.
