Left-Wing Labor Union SEIU Found Hoarding 39 Million Face Masks

Extremist left-wing labor union SEIU miraculously “found” the 39 million medical face masks in its warehouses three days after U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr announced that the feds were going to start going after hoarders.

During a press conference early this week, Barr noted that the U.S. government was going to start prosecuting people for hoarding medical supplies.

On Monday, Trump signed an executive order giving the Department of Justice the task of prosecuting hoarders.

“We have started to see some evidence of potential hoarding & price gouging,” Barr said. “So, earlier today the president signed a second executive order providing the authority to address…hoarding that threatens the supply of those necessary health and medical resources.”

“If you have a big supply of toilet paper in your house, this is not something you have to worry about. But if you are sitting on a warehouse with masks, surgical masks, you will be hearing a knock on your door,” Barr added.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, but after that announcement, the extremist union “found” an incredible 39 million face masks it had in its stores that it “accidentally” forgot about.

Per NBC San Francisco:

Service Employees International Union United Healthcare Workers West announced Thursday that it located 39 million N95 masks and will make them available to state and local governments and health care systems that are fighting the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The union found a distributor with the masks, which are cleared for surgical use, after pleas from health care workers as new coronavirus cases surge across the state and the country as a whole.

Union officials said they also found a supplier that can produce some 20 million protective masks per week and another that can supply millions of protective face shields.

Imagine that?

But, why didn’t the SEIU speak up about its hoarding of face masks last week when it first became an issue?

You know why. Because they had no intention of allowing people who really need them to get them.

Biden Operative Accused of Stealing $1 Million from Union

A close ally of Joe Biden is accused of stealing $1 million from a union pension fund.

A close ally of Joe Biden is accused of stealing $1 million from a union pension fund according to an internal probe published by the Washington Free Beacon.

According to the Beacon:

Harold Schaitberger, the president of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), which represents more than 300,000 firefighters, is facing accusations of corruption and gross financial malpractice from his closest deputies. Edward Kelly, the general secretary-treasurer and the number two of the union, detailed the findings of his team’s audit in a March 20 internal memorandum. According to the 105-page document, the audit has thus far found that Schaitberger and Thomas Miller—Kelly’s predecessor as the general secretary-treasurer—illegally earned millions of dollars from the union pension fund over the last two decades.

Kelly accused Schaitberger’s people of intentional obfuscation and purposefully bad record keeping to hide the theft.

Kelly’s audit also found that the union misreported millions of dollars in union funds while diverting millions of dollars for a purpose unrelated to their original designation. As a result of this rampant financial malpractice, roughly $6 million in union funds remain unaccounted for, according to the memorandum.

New Haven Fire Department battalion chief Frank Ricci is demanding a full investigation.

“If these allegations are proven true through the appropriate due process, Harold A. Schaitberger, General President, should be removed from office. Kelly talks about ‘turning over couches’ to find money, I think it’s time to turn over the couches and chase the rats out,” he told the Beacon.

Schaitberger is one of Biden’s longest labor allies and was the main force for the IAFF to endorse Biden for president.

The Biden ally earns $388,000 a year as a union leader, but he was also pulling in an additional $5,105 a month from the pension system. The additional amount seems to violate the union’s contract as well as federal pension laws.

The probe also accused Schaitberger of reaping millions in unearned pension benefits.
