[Sen. Carl Levin and] activists demanding more disclosure and regulations [of political donations] especially target corporations. So far as I know, the same activists are blithely indifferent to unions electioneering and have raised no criticism of the Obama administrations roll-back of efforts by the Department of Labor to require more disclosure of what unions do with the monies they take from members.
This silence on unions is odd, since they are at least as influential in elections as corporations, and unlike corporations, unions are far more focused in their giving; for example, they are far more likely to give to one party than corporations are. Unions also often fail to meet existing legal requirements for their general financial disclosures.... the Department of Labor's Inspector General released an audit last year that found "the Department's Office of Labor Management Standards (OLMS) is missing most violations of union financial disclosure requirements."
In all ... "92 percent of the unions that were audited violated regulations, yet the OLMS failed to report 76 percent of those violations because of their flawed reporting standards." Worse, "OLMS has dramatically cut back on its audits. Despite frequently finding criminal violations, the Obama Administration cut the number OLMS audits by almost 40 percent between 2009 and 2011."

Should be interesting. Since the SC has granted person status to corps regarding their activities, seems they would be justified and in answering any questions with NO based upon the first amendment.

Watched some union apologist last night whining about fast food workers, striking for higher wages.
Wish the host would have said:
“Those wage increases only go to pay the mob bosses! The worker’s take home pay doesn’t change!”
