Well this is hardly suspicious

(H/T ABP)

It would seem that the AFL-CIO has been far more allied to the Democratic party political establishment then it has to the Labor Movement.

The first documents received from unions in the Labor Department’s demand for detailed financial disclosures, for the first time strictly enforcing the 1959 Landrum-Griffin labor reform act, suggest embarrassment by organized labor when the information is made public next month.

Early reports show the AFL-CIO spent $49 million (27 percent of its total annual budget) on political and lobbying activities but only $30 million (or 16.5 percent) to represent its members. That gap contributed to the breakaway from the AFL-CIO of the Teamsters, the Service Employees and other unions.

Here’s hoping the rebel alliance in the Union movement fixes the imbalance
