Back in July, ACORN-aficionado James O’Keefe exposed New York union bosses caught on tape showing their appreciation for the concept of taxpayer-funded “shovel ready” jobs–that is the idea of digging holes only to fill them back in and getting the government (taxpayers) to fund the make-work project. Well, Mr. O’Keefe and his hidden camera team have been at it again–this time exposing how how beholden Democrat politicians are to unions like the SEIUs.
In his latest video, O’Keefe catches New Jersey SEIU boss Rahaman Muhammad explain doing business with Democrat politicians like New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez.
According to a press release from O’Keefe’s Project Veritas explains:
In a previous report released in July, top New York union bosses were caught in candid discussions regarding a federally funded program known as “Green Jobs, Green New York,” with one leader calling much of the $112 million program “bullshit.”
“This is significant because labor unions are some of the biggest beneficiaries of taxpayer-funded jobs,” says O’Keefe. “If they’re intentionally propping up paper jobs, then they’re complicit in the fleecing of taxpayers.”
The latest video from Project Veritas captures Newark SEIU President Rahaman Muhammad laying out in explicit terms the nature of the relationship between his union and lawmakers like Democrat Senator Robert Menendez.
Project Veritas: “So that means you’re going to get the union dues…”
Project Veritas: “…to your campaign.”
SEIU: “Exactly! It benefits them.”
Language Warning: If you are offended by union bullsh*t, you may not want to watch this video. However, if you are not offended, be sure to watch the whole thing.
O’Keefe’s video is just another example of how far union bosses have gone in buying the Democratic party and, in part, why the SEIU is putting 100,000 boots on the ground to re-elect Barack Obama.
