Big Labor's NLRB Nominee Promises He'll Change His Spots

In following the hearing of the Senate Democrats’ attempt to rush SEIU Associate General Counsel Craig Becker onto the National Labor Relations Board before Scott Brown gets seated to the Senate, it is interesting to read that Mr. Becker, despite years of writing for compulsory unionism, working and advocating for a union that believes in compulsory unionism now says he can be “fair and impartial”:

Labor lawyer Craig Becker tried to allay Republican objections today to his nomination for the National Labor Relations Board, telling a Senate committee that he would leave behind his past advocacy for unions.

“The ability to be fair and impartial is, of course, absolutely critical to the credibility of the board,” said Becker, who has represented unions and has taught labor law as a professor. He added, “I completely understand that, if I’m confirmed, the role I will play will be different from those roles.”

Never say never, but can we really believe this leopard will change his spots?
