I’ve gotten several enraged e-mails from rank-and-file SEIU members who have been leaned on by their leaders to campaign against Arizona’s immigration enforcement law.

From reader A.:

I am a member of SEIU because, as an employee of Los Angeles County I have to be, and today I received an email from their office detailing how I can get a free seat on a bus from L.A. to Phoenix…to protest SB 1070. I am furious over this and wrote an email back to them to tell them so. I forget to mention to them I am especially upset over them using my dues to pay for this bus and the trip. I fully support the intent of SB 1070, all the efforts of Gov. Jan Brewer, and the efforts of “Stand with Arizona”…I believe our borders should be firmly closed, and Mexicans should stand in line with all other would-be emigres from all other countries, get a passport and visa like everyone else, and come here legally…Further, we are the only country in the world that has wide-open borders and lets in criminals along with elderly women who only want to be maids. What on earth are we thinking? This will ruin our country! Thanks for all you are doing.

Hasn’t the SEIU wasted enough of its members’ money?

$10 million down the drain in Arkansas for the Purple Army’s failed bid to unseat Democrat Blanche Lincoln.

$10 million on a nasty lawsuit against a competing union in California.

Untold millions in fatcat pension funds and lavish deals for former SEIU head Andy Stern’s hand-selected cronies.

Another $44 million budgeted for left-wing political lobbying in the coming election cycle.

Who knows how much on transporting SEIU radicals to bully bank execs and their families at their private residences.

Oh, and that $40,000 payment to former SEIU heavy-turned-Obama domestic political adviser Patrick Gaspard which he somehow forgot to report to the most transparent administration in American history.

Down the drain.

No wonder more and more rank-and-file union workers are revolting against the Big Labor thugs.

Let me know if you are one of them. And stay safe.

Commenter Itooktheredpill asks: “How about: Hasn’t the SEIU wasted enough of taxpayers’ money?”

Yes, indeed. Until there is a systemic internal revolt by rank-and-file members over how their leaders spend their dues, SEIU will continue to succeed in siphoning off and squandering our money.
