SEIU, It’s Spelled S-E-I-U. Joseph Iosbaker is Chief Steward for Local 73 of the SEIU

Chicago Daily Observer 27 September 2010 14 Comments

According to the SEIU, Joseph Iosbaker is Chief Steward for Local 73 of the SEIU.  Joseph Iosbaker is being investigated by the FBI for his connection to terrorist groups.  Two days ago, ABC-7 also noticed that he was affiliated with the SEIU, and the Tribune has nearly noted this as well.

But (of course) the incumbent Media has decided to bury the lead.

The Marathon Pundit is on to a connection here

”So I owe those unions. When their leaders call, I do my best to call them back right away.” Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope.

“We are going to paint the nation purple with SEIU.” Barack Obama, 2008.

Well, the Service Employees International Union is back in the news. Well, not really. But it was for a little while.

And is our intrepid Mt. Greenwood correspondent, Pat Hickey let’s rip that the AP missed the big, purple, SEIU elephant in the room.

CHICAGO — Two anti-war activists said Saturday that a 12-hour search of their Chicago home by the FBI was an attempt to intimidate them and silence the peace movement.
Joe Iosbaker and his wife, Stephanie Weiner, said the government targeted them because they’ve been outspoken against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and U.S. funding of conflicts abroad. They denied any wrongdoing.

WMAQ Channel 5 blows the story

Joe Iosbaker and his wife, Stephanie Weiner, both of Chicago, said the government targeted them because of their outspoken voice against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They both denied any wrongdoing

as did WGN Channel 9, as did WBBM Channel 2, and in a reversal WLS Channel 7 removed the references to the SEIU from it’s broadcast story.

This is the same media who did not notice that the SEIU had some sort of connection with ACORN, so lets get this clear, Joseph Iosbaker is Chief Steward for Local 73 of the SEIU.  There are only so many Iosbaker’s in the phonebook.  This is the one who is the Chief Steward for Local 73 of the SEIU.
