Labor Department Wins 7(A) Case
The United States Department of Labor has been granted summary judgment in a FOIA case brought against it by a Labor Union and its business manager. Labor withheld the records pursuant to Exemption 7(A) because it contended that there is a criminal investigation of both the Union and the business manager. Federal District Court Judge Ruben Castillo of the Northern District of Illinois agreed with the Labor Department and said the documents could be withheld pursuant to Exemption 7(A).

The word criminal still kinda jumps out at you.

yea but that's what the dumb black voters want more democrats more unions more taxes less jobs.

Poor dumb black voters don't see how sad the south side of Chicago has become. life in the hood outrageous. 520 black kids killed many more wounded by out of control n word drug gangs using unregistered unlicensed guns. no jobs, which is ok for blacks cause they got's welfare and they don't need or want no jobs.

You should attend a job fair anywhere in America and see all the real americans out there applying for an looking for work but alas an alack none is black applying for work, why is that??

well just remember you blacks voted for this one corrupt political party da democrats working with corrupt unions to mismanage the city.

you all must like the hood the way it is with funerals every week of black kids killed by black drug dealers. But doesn't all that death reduce your welfare payments????
or are things in chicago so corrupt you get paid even if yer kid is dead??

If your ever at a job fair some place I can should sow you pictures of how beautiful the south side was back in the 70's before the plague of black killers drug dealers & illegal immigrants moved in to destroy the south side.

Ops what am I thinking there won't be no blacks attending any job fairs anyplace on this planet.

even al notvery Sharpton knows that..........
