You see union thugs in the news causing trouble and acting like morons. These people tend to say they’re working for the good of the people, when they selfish buggers are just lining their own pockets while claiming to be for the little guy. I saw this on Fox News and thought it was so funny! Read the following article from FoxNews.com.
A former rising star within the Service Employees International Union has been charged with bilking his ex-employer, one of the nation’s most powerful labor groups.
Tyrone Freeman, 42 years old, who once led a large Los Angeles-based local representing low-wage health-care workers, was indicted Tuesday on 15 criminal counts, including mail fraud and the embezzlement of $100,000.
Mr. Freeman is accused of diverting union funds in $2,500 monthly payments in 2007 and 2008. The federal grand jury that indicted Mr. Freeman late Tuesday said he also improperly took $17,000 from a low-income-housing nonprofit group and used a union credit card to pay $8,000 toward his Hawaii wedding.
The charges cap a four-year probe by the Labor Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service. Mr. Freeman, who now lives in Pittsburgh and has recently worked as a business consultant, faces a maximum sentence of more than 200 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
