Great post over on RedState by Mark Kilmer, highlighting at item at the end of Bob Novak’s column yesterday. It notes that the new reporting requirements imposed on unions by the Labor Department to force greater disclosure reveal that the AFL-CIO spent $49 million on political and lobbying activities, as compared to $30 million to represent its members.
We’ve always said that they long ago ceased being a labor movement and became a political movement, to the detriment of their members. This is but one more bit of evidence — as if you needed it — that this is now fact.
