OBAMA AND BLAGO …. and the SEIU

Obama and Blago go way back, and have been cavorting together a long time. Blago knew who to use to get to Obama.

ATLAS EXCLUSIVE: Obama paid out at least $2,250,000 to the SEIU, the Service Employees International Union – the nation's largest labor union and the latest 'criminalized' org to  be exposed in the this Democrat scandal of enormous proportion. And SEIU COPE-PAC spent  $13,355,389.00 on behalf of Barack Hussein.

SEIU 880 endorsed Obama for Presidency. Obama, Blagojevich, ACORN, Rathke, Gamaliel (Obama was a
former GAMALIEL organizer).

In this latest bombshell in the Obama/Blago corruption scandal

The complaint alleges that Blagojevich tried to use an intermediary[SEIU] to
bargain with Sen. Obama; it describes a meeting on November 12 with a
high-ranking official at the Service Employees International Union,
where Blagojevich suggested that he'd accept a position at an
organization designed to help the Senate candidate.

Source: ‘SEIU official’ was Stern  —  A Democratic source
confirms that SEIU President Andy Stern is the “SEIU official” referred
to in the federal complaint against Rod Blagojevich.

Blagojevich seems to have mainly wanted money, because his family
was having financial problems, and possibly to have a political future
of some sort.   

However Blagojevich seems to have kept changing his mind about
specifically what he wanted from SEIU.  At one point he wanted a
501(c)(4) organization set up with 10 to 15 million bucks in it.  The
organization would help the new Senator, but it looks like it would be
run by Blagojevich.  The unnamed union official agreed to "send up a
flare".

At a different point Blagejovich wanted to be put in charge of
Change to Win, which is affiliated with SEIU.  It sounds like the SEIU
official objected on the basis that other folks were doing the work
already, but Harris (Blagojevich's chief of staff) seemed to think that
a three way quid pro quo could be worked out in which Obama gave
something to SEIU and SEIU gave Blagojevich the job.  No indication if
SEIU was good with this.  Then Blagojevich got the bright idea that
perhaps SEIU could give his wife a job.

(Isn't it funny how coolly the left wing rabid blogs report news like this, sans party affiliation, of course — lol.) The above excerpt is from the same blog that photoshopped Senator Lieberman in minstrel black face.

Interestingly enough, Obama paid at least $2,250,000 to the SEIU over the last few months of his election campaign. Coincidence? This is fishy; this plain stinks.

Remember, Mistuh "Change", Mistuh "Hope" refused pleas to push reform in Illinois.

He [Obama] would not use
his influence to safeguard landmark state legislation
barring big
government contractors from making campaign contributions. Designed as a response to the "pay-to-play politics" that have
flourished under Gov. Blagojevich,
the plan would have barred firms with more
than $50,000 in state contracts from donating to the officeholder in
charge of the deals. (more on that here)

The transcript of Patrick Fitzgerald's press conference is available here.

UPDATE: SEIU COPE-PAC
$13,355,389.00
has been spent on behalf of Barack Obama through August 21, 2008.
($1,600,415.00 has been spent against John McCain through July 31, 2008).  Click below for breakdown. Source here.

SEIU and Obama on Obama’s own website;

“SEIU’s members are temperamentally suited to Obama; he
is a longtime friend of Chicago’s SEIU Local 880 and worked closely
with the union as an organizer and later as a state legislator.”

SEIU paid for door-to-door canvassing for Obama, voter identification and registration, phonebanks…an expenditures document.

Presented by the Federal Election Commission, numerous donations to the Obama campaign by SEIU in 2008.

SEIU involved with Get Out the Vote in Indiana.

Obama’s 2004 campaign, contributions by SEIU.

Service Employees International Union Independent Expenditures

SEIU, specifically SEIU Local 880/Chicago, contributed money directly to Obama’s campaign.

SEIU and ACORN and Wade Rathke.

To an observer from outside Louisiana, it’s
sometimes difficult to tell where SEIU ends and
ACORN begins
. The union and the community
organization seem to merge. The relationship is
easier to understand when one learns that Wade
Rathke, who founded the New Orleans ACORN
chapter 30 years ago, is also the chief organizer
of SEIU local 100. The two are fraternal, not
identical, twins
.40 (here)

WADE RATHKE: ACORN’S FOUNDER, AYERS’ COMPATRIOT No Quarter

Rathke is the founder of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 100. He was ACORN's chief organizer from its founding in 1970 until he stepped down June 2, 2008.[1] Rathke and his wife, Beth Butler, live in New Orleans, Louisiana. ( all the cockroaches are at this party) (from Rotten ACORN)

When employees of Rathke’s SEIU Local 100 wanted
to organize themselves into a union, Rathke relied on
his wife and brother to plot out an aggressive (and
hypocritical) union-avoidance strategy. One former
employee reported that after employees provided
Rathke with a petition demanding union recognition:
Rathke quickly called a meeting of ACORN’s inner
circle, which included his wife, Beth Butler, head
organizer of Louisiana ACORN, and Rathke’s
brother Dale, who is the financial guru of the outfit.
The troika devised a variety of tactics, such as can be expected from any union-busting corporation, to
divide and destroy our solidarity.

Department of Labor financial disclosures
show at least $623,829 in transactions
between ACORN’s SEIU locals 100 and 880
and other Rathke/ACORN-run operations.
