When Villains Join Forces: SEIU Pressured Blagojevich to Appoint Valerie Jarrett
The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Union leader Tom Balanoff just testified that right after the Presidential election, he met with both Valerie Jarrett and Alexi Giannoulias about Jarrett’s possible appointment to the Senate by Rod Blagojevich.
Balanoff said he planned to tell Blagojevich that if he didn’t appoint Jarrett then the governor couldn’t expect future help from the union, a major Democratic contributor.
“I was going to use our union’s influence to make a good decision,” Balanoff said.
Blago, Obama, Giannoulias,and SEIU: nice people to do business with.
