Hews Media Group-Community News has obtained a lawsuit filed in the California Central US District Court claiming that former US Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, a current candidate for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, was provided thousands of dollars worth of free private jet travel without declaring the trips on the federal government required forms, paid for by the powerful International Union of Operating Engineers based in Pasadena during the same period she was undergoing confirmation hearings to become part of President Barack Obamas Cabinet.....

William Waggoner with Hilda Solis. The lawsuit accuses Solis of not reporting flights to the Federal Elections Commission on the Unions jet. HMG-CN was provided with flight logs that detail the plane trips that lasted in some cases less than five minutes between Ontario and El Monte, costing thousands of dollars.
The case is currently making its way through the court system and is before Judge Dean D. Pregerson.
Sources close to the case tell HMG-CN that Solis was given transportation on IUOE Local 12′s Cessna Citation XL Jet and that Solis failed to report the in-kind gift to the Federal Election Commission as required under law.
According to the Office of the Clerk U.S. House of Representatives website, no Financial Disclosure Reports have been filed by Solis...

EXCLUSIVE: Former US Labor Secretary Hilda Solis Failed to Report Trips on Private Jet Owned by Powerful Labor Boss During 2009 Confirmation Hearings
Heard this woman speak at a conference. She’s a racist piece of $#@%
Look for the union ahole
Thanks for posting this.
Polititians do what politicians do....... and unions buy politicians. This is breaking news?
Offered as part of the evidence in the case is a Jan. 2013 article published in the Washington Times that discussed Soliss policy of protecting unions. One of her biggest changes in direction was her reversal of the Bush administrations efforts to fight union corruption. Ms. Solis predecessor, Elaine Chao, had issued several rule changes to make it easier for union members and watchdogs to detect wrongdoing.
Ms. Solis rolled those changes back saying they had a detrimental impact on workers and made the union financial reporting requirements not only overly burdensome but ineffective, the article stated.
Yawn... nothing will happen.
I’m watching Charlie Chaplin in “The Great Dictator” Same story as now, just white instead of black.
I told a hopeful but misguided soul that thought we might get the spinate back and impeach the sob that the GOP would never impeach a black queer.
Why, this is somewhat hard to believe knowing how PRUDENT this entire Administration has been. /s
Why does a union need a private jet?
Joined, thanks for posting this. I removed your title in favor of the published title, then added a few more excerpts from the article and included the court filing’s photo of Ms. Solis and William Waggoner, Leader of the International Union of Operating Engineers Union.
Maybe we (the Senate) should stop rubber stamping Obama’s assholes.
To shuttle all of those politicians that they own?
Hilda Solis, yet another crony living the high life with free money and taxpayer dollars. Just like standing in the DMV line, we will wait forever and nothing good will come from it.
Hilda Solis and “people of color” are untouchable and we will keep having our paychecks deduct their living expenses.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS---Obama was joined in the negotiations by VP Joe Biden, and five cabinet secretaries, including DHS Janet Napolitano, interior secretary, Ken Salazar, energy secretary, Steven Chu, Labor Secy Hilda Solis, Valerie Jarrett, and COS Rham Emanuel. / PICTURE/BP Holdings.
DOING THE DEAL---Obama dreams about his cut and new diamonds for Michele. In foreground, then-COS Rahm Emanuel's hand holds the pencil jotting down his cut that will help make him Chicago Mayor.
At the top, in turquoise, then-Labor Secy Hilda Solis figures out her cut and how many BP executive jobs she needs for latinos. Left, in orange, Dragon Lady Valerie Jarrett hopes Biden will remember his scripted lines.
THE EXTORTION GAME VP Joe Biden Told BP: "Youll Put $20 Billion In Escrow Or Well Do It For You."
She must be using the same travel agent as Pelosi.
Most bigwigs in unions never held a job in their lives. And certainly never held a job that the people they represent do for a living.
Oh, I’m sure it’s okay. She probably used her Labor Secretary position prerogative to change the rules “at her discretion” much like the thousand-plus instances of “at the [HHS] secretary’s discretion” caveats built into PPACA that Obama is using to “make this sh!t up as he goes along”.
I’d be willing to be she is about as smart as an empty toilet paper tube.
Damn! If I were divorced, she’d be the embodiment of my worst nightmare as a bitch ex-wife.
There is never a crime where a Big Labor hired hand flies on one of their planes.
Secretary of Labor is a temp job while the real permanent job is on one of the various fake DNC interest groups.
Please be advised that Copyright restrictions apply down thread, as well. Thanks.
Transparency ping, thanks joinedafterattack.
At this point, what difference does it make? Nobody from this administration is ever punished for wrong doing.
Shame on you for preaching doom and gloom. /s
Merely a commentary on the obvious for anyone to take as they may.
Where's the media? What an outrage to think that a mere AUTHOR/PRODUCER (Dinesh D'Souza) is facing years in jail for something that pales in comparison TO THE ACTIONS OF THOSE WHO HOLD HIGH OFFICE WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT.

The culture of corruption is orchestrated by those who position themselves on top, whether they be celebrities, CEO managers or union managers or university presidents, school superintendents, or head coaches, or lobbyists, etc..
I belong to a nonprofit credit union where they merge with other CUs only to justify big raises for the CEO but less benefit for members. Their CDs, fees, loan rates are worse than average and the CEO and his second in command get significantly over a million. The system is rigged for them while we all argue about politics.
They structure the system with cronies so they get all bennies imaginable, and are paid many times what they are worth, because they are in a special club and none have ever risked a dollar of capital.
I find the corporate CEOs who get platinum contracts that make them fireproof even when they fail as most outrageous example of the culture of corruption. The middle class is being stripped by this culture of corruption.
going off topic here but I’m ignorant as to this whole non-profit scam, though I’ve reliably read and know in the bones its a huge ruse.
I’ve got a real lib sister whose become a nurse in the SF Bay area late in life and after not five years of school & practice over there holds that “for profit medicine” is the bane of the US. She walked into near $70 as a starting RN there whereas NH starting RNs make HALF of that. What in the world is going on?
Another sister of mine has a local NPR show and what of that- tho a different horse- (this has been long discussed)?
Can what you say be generally true of “non-profits” - that the up and ups reap the dough? What you say is horrible. How are they keeping the lid on this (aside the usual lib media dominance)? Workers must be getting competitive wages/benes right down the line for this not to come out.
Are there a significant percent of non-profits that have unionized workers? What is going on?
Can u point me to a good link/book?
Did you see the /s?
Operators are bad people. They destroy non union contractor’s equipment for spite
