Obama’s NLRB Appointment Comes from Union with Mob Ties!

Mr. Griffin’s Bio on the NLRB Website
https://www.nlrb.gov/who-we-are/board/richard-griffin

Richard Griffin, Obama’s recent recess appointment to the NLRB, was a lawyer for a Union with close ties to the mafia.  Secretary of Labor  Hilda Solis stated that “we can’t afford to not move on very important issues that affect working class people, and particularly working Americans that are struggling right now…we need to know there’s a sense of security and … that we honor the ability to collectively bargain.”  However, let’s take a look at Mr. Griffin.  According to The Washington Free Beacon:

 That recess appointee, Richard Griffin, was former general counsel for the 400,000-member [International Union of Operating Engineers] – a union tainted over the years by mob connections and a history of corruption.

Public documents obtained by Fox News show that more than 60 IUOE members have been arrested, indicted or jailed in the last decade on charges that include labor racketeering, extortion, criminal enterprise, bodily harm and workplace sabotage.

In some of the more egregious examples, federal prosecutors alleged in February 2003 that the Genovese and Colombo crime families wrested control of two IUOE locals, and stole $3.6 million from major New York area construction projects — including the Museum of Modern Art and minor league baseball stadiums for the Yankees and Mets in Staten and Coney Islands.

“Hope and Change” right? Fuggedaboutit!

    What does this have to do with the man appointed to the job. Wherever, there is wealth there is a rich white man behind some thief of some kind. He was appointed legal counsel, which does not make him responisble or part of any wrong doing. You need more than crap like this to bring obama down. Keep feeding the morons, so that they can keep feeding you. People lack integrity in times such as this, and if printing horse pucky gets you a check then keep them coming, i would not want you to end up on foodstamps, free healthcare, welfare or some other government subsidies

      Uh-huh… that…. and the FACT that this administration, along with prior administrations, is/were INFESTED with appointees and persons whom have less than desirable reputations. Could this not be a catalyst for a storyline such as this? I am perplexed by how quickly those who defend Obama, or party-line politics in general, invoke the “this is smear journalism” attitude whilst forgetting that Obama, Bush, Republicans, Democrats etc… etc… are responsible for the degradation of our political system and our society. Appointees that allow bias in our judicial system make us look like a “laughing stock” when we should be setting a benchmark. Appointees in our regulatory system stifle us as a nation by playing politics instead of regulating… and so on….and so on…and so on… I am certain I could cite many more examples.
      The attitude revealed by your comment above illustrates the real problem: We the people, allow ourselves the luxury of turning a “blind eye” to those who represent us because of political ideology and the results are a White House, Congress and Senate that are nothing more than a forum for legalized bribery, graft and corruption. Until this changes, nothing changes.
      In the future, if you wish to opine, be sure your “bias” isn’t showing. It compromises your integrity.

        my integrity is in tack. I do agree others see us as laughing stocks and we should try to regain the respect we once enjoyed, but not by trashing the potus which makes us look divided.
