SEIU’s Fundraising Scheme: It’s an offer you can’t refuse!

Contributions to political action committees are voluntary by law.  But when the SEIU decided to punish local affiliates that did not meet fundraising goals, they instituted a punishment.  The National Right to Work Committee filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) which decided to turn a blind eye to the scheme.  What’s worse, the FEC violated its own rules by deciding this form of coercion was OK by them.
