Job-Killers At The Gate

Corrupt lapdog Obama heels when unions whistle
Soon after taking the oath of office, Obama undid union financial disclosure requirements mandated by the very same 1959 law. Before the Obama transparency rollback, unions had to fill out LM-2 forms reporting the total value of all benefits received by union officers, the names of parties involved in union asset transaction, and all union receipts. Now, thanks to Obama, unions do not have to disclose any of these financial transactions to their members.

In 2008 the president of the largest Service Employees International Union in the country, Tyrone Freeman, resigned after it was revealed he stole $1 million from the $9-an-hour home health workers he supposedly represented. Freeman's embezzlement only came to light after the Los Angeles Times delved into the SEIU's LM-2 forms.

The original Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act that governs both of these regulations was passed after extensive Senate hearings on labor union corruption. The law was designed to make it harder for Big Labor thugs like Freeman to steal from union members. But Obama would rather turn a blind eye to union corruption because he needs their votes in November. Instead he wants to punish employers with the same law Congress originally passed to protect workers. Congress should not stand for this.

Obama-SEIU Still Looting America

Andy Stern's $2.8 billion no-bid contract probed
Capitol Hill’s top investigator, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said he wants documents from the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services relating to the award of a no-bid contract worth up to $2.8 billion, and he is demanding to know what the White House’s role was, if any, in prodding the HHS to sign off on the enormous pharmaceutical deal.

In a letter dated June 9, Reps. Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Sam Graves (R-Mo.), chairman of the Small Business Committee, wrote to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius raising concerns about the contract, which was awarded in May to SIGA Technologies.

One person familiar with the situation said he’s worried the company’s Democratic political connections could have improperly affected the deal.

SIGA is well connected politically: Andy Stern, one of the United States’ top labor leaders and a close ally of the Obama White House, sits on SIGA’s board, along with Frances Fragos Townsend, the former Homeland Security Advisor to President George W. Bush.

In the June 9 letter, a copy of which was obtained by CNBC, the two men write that their committees are “concerned about the procurement process used to select SIGA and the Department’s apparent indifference toward its obligation to obtain full and open competition.”
