A GOP source sends along this video, shot by a Republican tracker, of a union member supporting Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren outside of a debate Wednesday night in Springfield, Massachusetts. The cameraman asks the union member if he was at an earlier debate between Warren and her Republican opponent, Senator Scott Brown.
"Uh-huh," the union member says, nodding.
"Did you guys get fined if you weren't there?" the cameraman asks.
"Yeah," the union member replies.
"How much did you get fined?" the cameraman asks.
"A hundred and fifty," the man says, although he later adds, "It's two-fifty if you don't go." Watch the video below:

Anyone who doesn’t see current union leadership as today’s brownshirts doesn’t know their history. These guys are Thugs, pure and simple.
If I were one of those union members,this would guarantee that I’d take great pleasure in casting a ballot or Scott Brown on election day.
Be it a Labor Union or the Soviet Union, it’s the same mentality.
when Nazis don’t have a legal wedge to force support for them they reside to the tactics of the mobsters - they will take your money if you don’t do as they say
I see our Politburo has moved from nudge, to shove and soon to push.
You could go through a whole series of old B/W movies with a communist theme and see history repeating itself right here in the old USA.
Gots to be there or throw some wampum in the wigwam for Paleface Lizzy.
Need to remove unions’ racketeering exemption.
That the unions are having to resort to extortion of their own membership speaks volumes.
