The FBI and the U.S. Labor Department are investigating prominent labor leader Andy Stern in their probe of corruption at the Service Employees International Union, according to two people who have been interviewed by federal agents.
The two organized labor officials met with federal agents this summer to answer questions about a six-figure book contract that Stern landed in 2006 and his role in approving money to pay the salary of an SEIU leader in California who allegedly performed no work.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation. The FBI and the Labor Department’s office of inspector general declined to comment for the record.
The scandal plagued SEIU is spending an estimated $44 million to support its favored Democratic candidates while members’ pension funds are disappearing and the union’s debt is piling up. This weekend, they’ll be bussing thousands of union members to DC for the moonbat march on Washington. Malkin suggests that they “take a detour and protest at the SEIU headquarters instead.”
