Frank is on no one's payroll except the good members of the IUEC. He has proven himself time and time again and soon the IUEC's shinning star will be the Secretary of Labor. He will set the standard that all cabinet secretaries will be judged. A credit to all unions and credit to all american workers, a fair wage and benefits for all american workers will be his platform. He will have those Republicants bowing before him.
Please don't bring up republicans..........I don't think frank knows I'm a republican and we need the account it's a cash cow.

Exciting news President Obama is presentingFrank with the National Labor Man of the Year Award at his banquet in Chicago. Quite an honor for quite a man. Meanwhile Brad is huddled in a cardboard box in an underpass by 95th and Harlem. Please drop off cans of sterno so he can stay warm and their great eating too. It is too bad that job at Walmart didnt work out, must have been too many smoke breaks

It is really a shame unions are riddled with crime/extortion/bribery and embezzlement. Unions only exist for corrupt union bosses to extort companies.

Join a union and you too can be extorted and thrown under the bus by corrupt union bosses who rape and pillage the members. Then invade your privacy and personal lives.

Obama loves criminals. His Justice Department SUCKS !!!!!!!!

the only thing frank rules is CORRUPTION.

He also is pretty good at corrupting Lawyers.

He is very good at having impossible standards for his dissenters and no standards for his cronys, just like Obama.

He is also good at slandering and assasinating members who disagree with him. But what do you expect from a PUNK.

Oh Tony, my love I hate to see your anger that hurts me. You know that Frank is twice the man you'll ever be. That when Frank or any of the Chicago Ridge boys see you, tony you run like a little girl. I am sorry that Girl Scout troop 371 kicked you out for being a big sissy boy. Congratulations on being named the Grand Marshall of the Gay Pride Parade. Im sorry that you can only go "poof" when you fart. I must have been too rough on you during our cold nights at County. But I must thank Frank for bringing us together.

Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO)

On October 15, 1970, the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970 became law. Title IX of the Act is the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Statute (18 U.S.C. 1961-1968), commonly referred to as the "RICO" statute. The purpose of the RICO statute is "the elimination of the infiltration of organized crime and racketeering into legitimate organizations operating in interstate commerce." S.Rep. No. 617, 91st Cong., 1st Sess. 76 (1969). However, the statute is sufficiently broad to encompass illegal activities relating to any enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce.
