Franks outlaw motorcycle gang got their first real gig they are going to be in the Shriners parade on the mini bikes, hey don't laugh it's a start and he'll get top billing in the journal for how good a job local 2 did at yet another charity event, oh boy. If they could just put that kinda effort into helping the members.
Did you hear that Frank has beaten the Department of Labor and now will move up to his rightful place at the International and possibly as General President or Assistant to the General President.

Once again Frank offers no proof and all evidence is to the contrary, IUEC, its CORRUPT OFFICERS,Employees, and EMPLOYERS are TARGETS OF A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.

Kinda reminds me of BLAGO, with all of the false talk of granduer.

Yes there was a letter received at the Hall and read off on the floor and was offered for viewing to the whole membership that the Department of Labor will seek no further actions in this matter. Its over Frank once again is victorious over the Department of Labor. So Brad you need to move on with your life.

Criminals lie for a living. If their was a letter it would be posted on this board , on UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR LETTER HEAD. Any other talk about this subject is a lie.
Why would the government tell a Federal Judge they are refusing a FOIA request because of a pending CRIMINAL INVEATIGATION? Did the government blatantly lie to a judge ?
I highly suspect that the obama administration will do everything to supress evidence , just like Fast & Furious.

As evident by Dans response, their is no letter from the DOL !

I'm glad to hear that a Real Governor in Wisconsin is doing the right thing for its citizens and they are getting represented.

That is great news because that means Dana and Higgypooh will soon be packing. They could leave to go to Dana's house in Florida in which Dana's been taking a housing allowance from the union.

Frank has defeated the Sons of Liberty, the Department of Labor and to show how much political influence he has, he got Patrick Fitzgerald to resign. Soon Frank will be at the International leading this union back to greatness.

Is what the officers of iuec are. Going into a contract and unity no where in sight. If you think iuec is unified you need to change your medication. The 1% maybe , but the rank and file are getting the shaft as usual.
Isnt that

Frank has been victorious in everything he's done. Now that Fitzgerald is out of the way Frank will move to the top. Soon Dana and Higgins will be gone, they were the 2 holding Frank up.

Congradulations to Frank on his DOL victory. He should have no problem with Dana and Higgins. Double Dipping is a no no.

He is the best the real members knew he never engaged in any wrong doing. If he did he would have been caught by now. We need officers like him who can defend the local against the DOL.

It looks like we have more than one Frank Fan and that's what Local 2 is all about. We need to have an email campaign to the vice pesidents of the International to select Frank as a the next General President or Assistant to the General President. You're right he stood up to the DOL and wouldn't let them push the local around and won. He has the proven leadership skills and you know he will represent the membership and do local 2 proud.

Tony Rezko speaks: Blago knew of pay-to-play scheme for state boards
BY NATASHA KORECKI Federal Courts Reporter nkorecki@suntimes.com May 30, 2012 5:58PM

Updated: May 30, 2012 7:07PM

Ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich was well aware campaign contributors were paying for state board posts and appointments, Tony Rezko, his former top aide and the longtime political fixer said in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times Wednesday.

In a phone interview from prison, Rezko also said he never gave the now-imprisoned Blagojevich cash or bribes.

Did Blagojevich know about pay-to-play?

“Yes, he did,” Rezko said in a wide-ranging, hour-long interview from federal prison.

Did Blagojevich make recommendations on who to put in what post?

“Yeah sure. The things we talked about, sure,” said Rezko, who said he harbored no ill will toward Blagojevich.“We would have the discussions. X, Y and Z made a $50,000 [contribution] and looking to be placed on a board, where should we place that person if that person specifically requested to be placed on board, yeah. We had these discussions.”

Only a 10,000 donation but it's a union and alot votes and even volunteers. So he gets the spot but 10,000 is the minimum they've convicted on and franks a attractive target chairman of the Illinois elevator saftey board international vice president and multiy term buisness manager and so many other things ( see wic ) I say the Feds will get him I hate to say it but he's high profile and corruption sells copy.
