Guess Who Allegedly Beat Kenny Gladney
St Louis Tea Party ^ | August 9, 2009 | Bill Hennessy

Posted on 08/10/2009 1:14:17 PM PDT by penelopesire

Tea Party researchers have discovered some interesting news on one of the people arrested for beating Ken Gladney.

Elston K. McCowan is a former organizer – now the Public Service Director of SEIU Local 2000 – and board member of the Walbridge Community Education Center, and is a Baptist minister, has been a community organizer for more than 23 years, and now, he is running for Mayor of the City of St. Louis under the Green Party.

McCowan accused the Mayor of setting fire to his van . . . because that’s what big city mayors do in their spare time, I guess. He also called Slay a racist. And, on election night, McCowan thanked the family who voted for him. It was quite touching, actually.

McCowan is not a rank-and-file, card-carrying union guy. He is a director with SEIU. He IS the union. He ISSUES the cards. Andy Stern himself might as well have kicked Gladney.

Stern has some fishy hiring standards, folks. Can’t wait to see how he spins THIS one.

Thanks for the updates. Many Many of us are on the sidelines here watching what happens to these thugs. When will the main stream press pick this up?

In the video, one of the thugs accused Ken Gladney of "attacking a minister". I guess this is the "minister".

Well, well. A bunch of SEIU thugs, one of whom is an SEIU OFFICIAL, stands accused of beating a black man over his exercising his First Amendment rights.

This opens the door for a civil rights lawsuit against the SEIU itself, for big bucks.

The MSM? Never. The American media is so corrupt and morally bankrupt that they would rather see this country go down in flames than the report the truth about Barack Obama.

Cavuto just interviewed a couple who were at the Dingle-Mich, townhall meeting.

They said while waiting in line there was an “african-american man walking with a sign of Obama as Hilter”.

After the meeting they saw the SAME MAN handing out flyers for Democrat John Dingel/Obama Healthcare Reform plan.

Those bastards....anyone who sees a sign like this from now on should question the person holding and get pics.

That would be great. I think many of us would like to see these two bit thugs put under oath and sued..BIG TIME!!

He was way ahead on this story and he deserves credit for it. No surprise that the heavily unionized newspapers aren’t covering this story.

Ah! so this is why the SEIU website was saying that TH protesters had beaten up a Reverend and other SEIU members.

I was wondering where the whole Reverend thing came in.

Socialist Appeal magazine endorsed this guy during the campaign for mayor. They really are socialists. Wonder if that's why we are seeing such opposition to the Obama as Joker/socialist posters.

Of course. They don’t like being exposed for the marxists that they are. Obama lied to the American people to get elected, but he never had any intentions of governing from the ‘center’. The proof is right there for all Americans to see in the bills that he is pushing and his take-over of banks, car companies, insurance companies and now healthcare. Next on his agenda is taking over the oil companies and flinging open the borders. Our republic is being destroyed right in front of our eyes and Americans have decided they don’t like it. Better late than never.

On a bright note..if Obama continues in this path, he will bring the entire Democrat party down. This is not a San Francisco values and socialist country.
