SEIU - The Next ACORN to crack

In a speech to the SEIU in 2008, Presidential Hopeful Barack Obama spoke about his close association with Andy Stern and Eliseo Medina. (

Andy Stern has been consolidating Unions in hostile takeovers and increasing the Union customer base exactly like the most ruthless CEO he claims to be working against. Mr. Stern has also been appointing people to high position, only to find that they are using their authority to use hundreds of thousands of dollars in Union money for personal use. There is an allowance of corruption in the Unions, as has been known for years.

Eliseo Medina is an Honorary Chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. He makes no apologies for his attempts to reshape America into a country like Russia. This is probably why the SEIU has now removed his bio page from its website.

It will be interesting to find out what else can be dug up on SEIU with more than a couple simple Google searches.
