FactCheck.org, the non-partisan “consumer advocate” for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics has declared recent AFL-CIO attack ads against Sen. John McCain as “false.”
The ad campaign, financed with mandatory union dues of workers, claims McCain voted against veterans’ health care benefits when he actually voted repeatedly to increase them.
The union bosses aren’t telling the truth? No surprise here. They believe that the upcoming elections in November may be their best chance in decades to get more legislative power to compel even more workers to pay dues and fees.
Apparently the end justifies any means in Big Labor land.
