Union Due's Pay for Party

With the Democrat National Committee (DNC) short on funds needed for their national convention this year, Democrat party leaders have turned to Big Labor Bosses to ask that they their union treasuries pay the freight.

In 2008, Big Labor kicked in $8 million in forced-union-dues money for the convention. This year it looks like the DNC needs more than that. Bloomberg’s Hans Nichols reports that “the three-day convention will culminate in Obama’s re-nomination in Bank of America Stadium on Sept. 6. So far, the host committee in Charlotte is roughly halfway to its $36.6 million goal.”

There is little doubt Big Labor political spending will easily top the $1 billion mark this election-cycle. What’s a few million more between friends?
