Guess Who Is Behind It
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
In an article entitled: “Unions Now Starting Their Own Political Party,” Warner Todd Huston, at the Canada Free Press, says the following: “Apparently the Democrats in North Carolina aren’t sufficiently leftist enough for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). It appears that the SEIU, one of the largest and most powerful public employees unions in the nation, don’t have their hand deep enough in the taxpayer’s pockets so it is starting its own political party in the Tar Heel State, by passing the Democrats altogether.” You may read the entire article HERE.

SEIU plans to have a slate of candidates ready to run in the Mid-Term Election this coming November.
At “The Plum Line,” Greg Sargent’s blog, he says: “It’s also unclear what kind of cash SEIU national will put into this effort — which will also include SEANC, the state employees’ union — and what this will do to relations between labor and the national Dem establishment. But this challenge appears to be a serious experiment in reshaping the landscape of Democratic politics, and it bears watching.” Read the entire article HERE.
North Carolina politics never fails to be entertaining. The coming Democratic Party blood-letting in the Mid-Term Election in November is shaping up to be another contest ranking right up there with mud wrestling!
