Nurses Union Funds Embezzled

In late November, John T. Daley was indicted for embezzling more than $1.2 million in an alleged fraud scam he ran while acting as Chief Financial Officer of the New York State Nurses Association.

“This case spotlights the vulnerability of organizations to theft from within,” said Albany County Assistant District Attorney Christopher Baynes. (See Times-Union.)

This is especially true of Big Labor, where many employees, who are subject to such abusive tactics by union officials, cannot withhold dues in protest – that is, stop paying for forced-union representation that is obviously contrary to their best interest – unless they are prepared to be fired from their jobs.
