James O’Keefe Continues to Expose Organized Labor’s Culture of Corruption

James O’ Keefe strikes again with a new video further exposing organzied labor’s felonious activity. The following is an excerpt from an email from Project Veritas.
As Newark local SEIU President Rahaman Muhammad explains on our new tape, a fake company could get your tax money just to dig ditches and fill them back up again, but it “depends on Democrats being in office.”
Muhammad also said that Democrats like Senator Robert Menendez “get support from the union,” and as long as we say that we’re with SEIU, “Menendez gonna be like ‘Oh, for real? SEIU? Oh good, great!'”…Great if you’re a union boss who gets “bullshi–” contracts and increased dues. And great if you’re a politician whose campaign is funded by union PACs.
But for taxpayers it’s a disaster.
Since 2005, labor unions have reported spending $4.4 billion dollars on political activity, with the vast majority of that money going to Democrats like Robert Menendez – despite the fact that half of SEIU members identify as Republicans or Independents!
Besides an obvious conflict of interest, the worst part about the financial arrangement between unions and elected officials is that much of the money going into campaign coffers comes from compulsory member dues.
In other words, union members are forced to pay for political candidates or activities they may not even support.
…Activities like the SEIU members that were reportedly were paid $20.00 each to rally at the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of ObamaCare!
This follows O’Keefe’s first video released in July highlighting “his company’s” attempts to secure union funding for a job that would cost the taxpayers money.
