Gateway Pundit has the scoop on just how corrupt the SEIU has become:
A former union official and California Department of Insurance employee was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison after entering no contest pleas to charges of child molestation, possession of child pornography, and manufacturing child pornography.
Jaime Enrique Feliciano, who served as a chapter president of Service Employees International Union Local 1000, which represents thousands of Sacramento-area state workers, had previous convictions for child molestation and failure to register as a sex offender.
In September 2008, investigators with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department initiated an investigation into Feliciano following a tip. Deputy District Attorney Lani Biafore said detectives recovered thousands of images of child pornography from Feliciano’s computers, as well as images of him molesting a young girl.
Don’t expect this to get much play from the state-run media.
Geez, no kidding. What absolutely floors me is this guy had ” previous convictions for child molestation and failure to register as a sex offender” and was STILL serving as an elected Union official. How does THAT happen?
And in case the initials “SEIU” are not familiar — those initals belong to the Service Employees International Union — the sister organization to ACORN. Both were founded by Wade Rathke; both share boards of direcdtors; and both share the same headquarters in Louisiana.
Corrupt to the core, both of these organizations.
