Frank I want you know that many, many members support you in cleaning up the International. We admire you for your courage to stand up to the International on behalf of the membership. We have seen how you cleaned up this local and stopped a company led rebellion with the Sons of Liberty. We all know you should be the General President and soon you will be there.

Bradly,
Loses his license in the state of Illinois to inspect elevators, expelled member of Local 2.
I am sure this is all Frank fault, Hmmmmm.
Next thing he will try to do is write to the General President a letter to try to take Frank down.
The Great thing is his guy's always talk on the street.
Who will listen to an expelled member and a Scum Bag that can't even hold on to Inspectors license ?

How is it that Illinois is the most corrupt state in the nation! The impossible standard for certain inspectors is BULLSHIT!!!!! The corrupt office of the fire marshal is all union politics. How is it that the democrats are corrupting every aspect of state government ? The fix was in from the beginning.

The state of Illinois is being run by a union boss who is under Criminal Investigation! Oh yeah just look at the Fast & Furious, obamacare tax ! The democrats have got to go!!!!!!!!!!

The number of union members voting Republican is staggering.

Bradly,

BREAKING NEWS, BREAKING NEWS "FLASH"
Wow, Bradly must be really pissed, he lost his decision in court by a Republican Judge, removing him as a license elevator inspector in the state of Illinois. "Fore-ever"
Now, everything is making sense, can't hold a job as a Elevator Constructor, worked for more company's than anyone at Local 2.
Now, He wants to help the General President of the IUEC to remove Frank from office, I will bet Dana will jump on this offer especially from an expelled member.

Their is no justice in Illinois!!! The corrupt democrats and their insane double standards! The FIX WAS IN from the beginning! Certain inspectors are held to impossible standards that could never be sustained. The legal precedent has been set so that if you dissent against IUEC, it is ok to use a state board for "retalitory" and union personal vendetta purposes and the State of Illinois has endorsed and engaged in this corruption. To be held to standards that are NOT WRITTEN or in any code book on the planet is an act of CORRUPTION!!!!! It's all about the money and preserving the status quo!!!!!! Like I said the FIX WAS IN FROM THE BEGINNING!!!!!!!!

Lynchie, you have been on this gay kick ever since you got out of jail for threatening Frank. I heard you like to wear a thong and dropped more than soap at the County facility. Lynchie you never were a man, you couldnt stand up to Frank enen if his hand were tield behing his back. I heard that Girl Scout troup 371 made you an honorary member because you were voted most feminent in Bollingbrook.

On July 7, 2011 the Department of Labor submitted the 4100 pages of documents for an "in camera" review along with further declarations to provide the Court with sufficient information to decide whether the requested materials fall within Exemption 7(A). On July 11, 2011, Frank Christensen submitted a motion to ask the Court to release the Department of Labor's Declarations filed on July 7, 2011. On July 20, 2011 the Department of Labor submitted a motion to oppose Frank Christensen's motion to release the Department of Labor's Declaration. In that motion, the Department of Labor stated the reason why the declaration should not be released to the Plaintiffs'(Frank Christensen and Elevator Constructors Local 2) is because the declaration, "fully details the pending investigation, including the identification of the charges being investigated and the identification of informants".[18]
On August 17, 2011 in a Federal District Court ruling; Frank Christensen and Elevator Constructors Local 2; lost its FOIA lawsuit against the United States Department of Labor:
In the Memorandum and Order, United States District Court Judge Ruben Castillo ruled that he Grants the Department of Labor's motion for summary judgment and Denies Elevator Constructors Local 2 and Frank Christensen's motion for summary judgment and motion for disclosure. Judge Castillo stated, that Dept. of Labor District Director Mary Kebisek's 29-page declaration submitted in camera is specific, detailed and demonstrates that the withheld documents logically fall within Exemption 7(A). The declaration consists of:(1) an explanation of the complaints and allegations that led to the initiation of the criminal investigation; (2) a description of the pending criminal investigation; (3) a description of the closed civil investigations and how they relate to the pending criminal investigation; (4) an identification of the documents responsive to the Union's FOIA request; and (5) an explanation of how disclosure of those documents would harm the pending criminal investigation.
Kebisek highlights in detail the risk that disclosure of these documents would prematurely reveal the Department of Labor's evidence, as well as the nature, scope, direction and focus of its investigations. This, in turn could enable the targets-here, the Union, its officers, employers and employees-to destroy or alter the evidence or construct defenses. Releasing the withheld information could enable the Union, its officers, and employees to identify the witnesses and confidential informants assisting the Department of Labor in its investigations, raising the possibility of witness intimidations and harassment. Finally, the Court denies the Union's motion for disclosure of Kebisek's in camera declaration and any documents that were wrongfully withheld from the Union. As discussed above, the Court concludes that the requested documents were properly withheld by the Department. Additionally, the Court has determined that no portion of Kebisek's in camera declaration can be disclosed without revealing the information the Department of Labor seeks to protect.[19]
