    A Service Employees International Union (SEIU) whistleblower has revealed that the organization forced him to work for Democratic political campaigns -- even those of candidates for whom he was ineligible to vote.

    Mallory Factor, the author of the best-selling book Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind, videotaped an interview with a former SEIU organizer in which he made the claim.

    In the video, the subject, whose voice has been distorted to protect him, says SEIU officials "were required" to take days off and work for candidates the union supported.

    "They would tell you, 'We need to go canvassing for this candidate, so we need you to sign this sheet to say that you are requesting a personal day today, so that you can go do this. We’ll make it up to you later,'" he recalls.

    The man continues: “And I [thought], ‘Is this really legal? Can you require me to volunteer for a candidate that I can’t even vote for?’ ... I don’t live in that jurisdiction, that district that they are running from.”

    ....

    Factor said the former SEIU organizer is "willing to testify in front of Congress" so long as his identity is concealed.

    Okay, who's surprised by this?

    Yeah. No one.

    Of course the unions tell people who to support. The proles have to have their opinions handed to them.

    Right, USMB leftist elitists?

    I'll be outraged when it's reported by someone other than Breitbart.

    Nope, but thanks for playing.

    I've been a member of SEIU for 7 years. Never been asked to go anywhere or donate anything. I'll wait for reputable news.
