    (repeated from another topic as it seems worthy of its own discussion)

    Public unions represent government employees.
    Government employees are, eventually, employed by elected officials.
    Unions routinely back/oppose the election of these government officials.
    Thus, an obvious conflict of interest.

    Riddle me these:
    Why are government employees allowed to form a union?
    Why are these unions allowed to engage in politics?
