Project Veritas has released a new video exposing evidence of a quid pro quo relationship between liberal Senator Robert Menendez and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
“The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate the clear conflict of interest that exists when an elected representative of the American people is bought and paid for by organized labor,” says James O’Keefe. “As we demonstrated in July, these union bosses don’t have the taxpayers’ interests in mind. Their primary objective is to get more public funding for make-work projects to increase compulsory dues and then use those dues to purchase political influence.”
In a previous report released in July, top New York union bosses were caught in candid discussions regarding a federally funded program known as “Green Jobs, Green New York,” with one leader calling much of the $112 million program “bullshit.”
The latest video from Project Veritas captures Newark SEIU President Rahaman Muhammad laying out in explicit terms the nature of the relationship between his union and lawmakers like Democrat Senator Robert Menendez.
“Unfortunately,” explains O’Keefe, “This arrangement doesn’t benefit the taxpayer. They’re the ones picking up the tab while unions and politicians profit from boondoggles like $112 million dollars in ‘bull****’ Green Jobs.”
