Looks like the Feds have finally caught up with the crooks at 1069. Where were they when the old man, "Phony Tony" was running things.

Looks like we have to wait until December to send Phoney Tony Jr and his brother off to jail. Meanwhile, the union continues to pay his legal fees. Wait, he could get a loan from the credit union!

How does a criminal like this still get to speak for the honest people at the Boeing Plant? Why would you elect someone who stole from you then have him negotiate a contract that will affect your pay?? What are the Feds waiting for? Why does this clown get a pass?
