Skip to comments.VIDEO: Trumka: Electoral Process 'Broken' by Supreme Court in Citizens United Campaign Finance Case

While speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 20, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said that the U.S. electoral process has been broken by the Supreme Court with its ruling in the Citizens United campaign finance case.
But an inconvenient truth for Trumka lies in readily-available campaign finance records.
According to OpenSecrets.org's list of the top 140 donors from 1989 to 2010, 12 out of the top 15 donate overwhelmingly to Democrats. As a matter of fact, a majority of those who give the most donations are unions such as the SEIU, American Federation of Teachers, and the Communication Workers of America.
The AFL-CIO, the union Trumka heads, is ranked 26 out of the top 140 political 'Heavy Hitters' with money in politics.
One way to put this into perspective is how much the Left has tried to demonize Koch Industries and the brothers who head it.

Anyone else notice how Richard Trumka bears a striking resemblance to Joseph Stalin? You also never see them together at the same party.
Is this the guy from the SNL skit “Da Bears”?
Trumka is a typecast union goon.
