    "Corrupt" and "UAW official" are synonyms. It's the going to the joint part that's new. And about time.

    That was an interesting article and well worth the read. I hope they continue to nail these shady so and so's. It listed some of his forfeited things that I think need sold off and dividends returned to those that got shook down or bilked(if that's the right word).

    Only 28 months? I'd think these guys would be getting more time.

    From afar - I suspect many of them have agreed to provide information regarding more corruption in the UAW, in exchange for a lenient sentencing recommendation from the prosecution.

    Re: Another Corrupt, Former UAW Official Heads to Prison

    Is anyone on GMI an active member (meaning currently employed) of the auto union? What is the mood - happiness that these guys have been caught? Frustration? Anger? Feeling like the system is rigged against the workers and they can't do anything?

    And union leaders wonder why people don't want to join unions...

    Do auto workers still pay dues to belong to this bag of corruption? Why not dump the union and give yourselves an instant raise no longer having to feed the union delegate pigs at the troff using your dues to take vacations and buy luxury items for themselves with it.

    Because they all want to be a part of the pyramid scheme. They're hoping that some day they'll be at the top and receive all the free benefits without doing any of the work. It's the ultimate pyramid scam.
