The FBI raids the Chicago home of a local union leader looking for terrorist connections as the union’s former chief is investigated for corruption. Why are we not surprised?

From being involved in fraudulent voter registration in Texas to beating up Tea Party activists outside town hall meetings in Missouri, SEIU’s reputation is well-established.

Now we can possibly add a linkage to terrorism.

Iosbaker is no less than the Chief Steward for SEIU Local 73.

Wade Radthke, a former Students for a Democratic Society member, founded Acorn and SEIU.

Stern, also an SDS member, cut his community and union-organizing teeth with the SDS. He was trained in the tactics of radical activism at the Midwest Academy, formed by former SDS members Paul and Heather Booth.

Unions were formed on the premise of helping exploited workers. Now it is the unions and their bosses, particularly the SEIU, doing the exploiting.
