Public Union AFSCME Illegally Hijacked Indiana Legislature; Obama minion DEM Leader Pat Bauer Snared by Own Law

Remember this year’s Infamous Democrat Indiana Walkout?

…39 Indiana Democrats—one stayed behind—fled to Illinois on Feb. 22 to deny the two-thirds quorum needed to act on legislation. They opposed about a dozen bills, including the union-membership measure.

Guess who stated, for the record, that the costs incurred by those 39 Democrat State Legislators to carry out that six-week walkout was paid for by individual voters’ donations to the Indiana Democrat Party?

Indiana House Democratic Leader B. Patrick Bauer

When the Indiana Dem Party had to disclose their financial statement, the truth came out. Numerous Unions bought and paid for the entire fiasco… thereby hijacking the legislative process of the state of Indiana in order to control law making. This is beyond Special Interests’ Influence… this is outrageous and illegal wholesale hijacking.

That the Indiana GOP majority in the Indiana Legislature caved-in to these Public Union tactics is also a total outrage …and I expect voters in Indiana to remember this and find replacements for these GOP Political cowards as their re-election comes around. There is no room for either cowards or RINOS in the GOP in these desperate times while we, as a nation, face humiliating National bankruptcy at the hands of Socialist Lawmakers.

As to the illegality issue? Ahhh… as the world turns:

Rep Bauer, himself, sponsored a state bill which was enacted into law  to stop Special Interests from hijacking the Legislative Process. Go Figure.

From Capitol & Washington

It wasn’t always true that legislators were prohibited from raising money during legislative sessions.  The law was changed last session out of a concern that special interests could drop a fortune in the middle of a legislative session and try to affect the outcome in their favor.  The bill that addressed that concern was filed by… wait for it… Pat Bauer.

How much did Union Bosses “Invest” in hijacking the Indiana State Government? (emphasis mine):

During the period of the walkout that began on February 22 and ended on March 28, Democrat-backed unions contributed nearly $140,000 to the Indiana Democratic Party.  Their goal: stop the legislative session in its tracks, kill anti-union bills, and pay whatever it took to keep Democrats holed up in an Illinois hotel.

After one week on the lam, Democrats had received $25,000 in contributions from Indiana-based unions like the United Steelworkers out of Gary and the Building Trades Council.  But that was only the beginning.  By week two, the national unions started writing five-figure checks.  On March 9th, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) kicked in $50,000 from their Washington, D.C. PAC.  The United Food and Commercial Workers Union matched it with $50,000 from their K Street-based committee.  On March 24, out-of-state Teamsters contributed $10,000 to the cause.

When questions were asked during the walkout where the money was coming from for a broke state party to pay a $2,500-a-day hotel bill, Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker and others claimed a groundswell of support from middle class workers across the country resulted in thousands of dollars in small contributions to support Democrat legislators. 

Upon further review, the Indiana Democratic Party did not receive a single individual contribution during the 1st quarter of the year. Not one, which is strange.  Walkout or not, there isn’t a single human being in Indiana that would write the Democratic Party a check?  It begs the question: where’s all that Al Franken money?

It also (re)begs the question: did Democrat legislators report in-kind contributions for the money that was donated through the Democratic Party to pay their hotel bills?

Indiana law restricts legislators from raising money during a long legislative session.  According to the 2011 Indiana Campaign Finance Manual (page 26), examples of in-kind contributions includes “things or services, such as free lodging.”  So… that’s pretty clear.

    This is a breaking story… will the Old School Media pick it up and report it, or report it in an unbiased way? I would not bet a penny that they will.

    Barry despises anyone who confronts him.
    I feel that most of his campaign will be conducted on Facebook, etc.
    That way, he cannot be questioned in real time.
    He is a bully, and bullies don’t like confrontation.

    He is only talking to the youth of America now, because most of them have been indoctrinated enough to believe his bullsh!t.

    As for bullies not liking being confronted, Meathead on Twit proved that today 🙂

    China urges US to be ‘responsible’ after S&P warning
    Tuesday, 19 April 2011 19:36

    BEIJING: China, the top holder of US Treasury bonds, urged the United States Tuesday to adopt “responsible measures” after ratings agency Standard & Poor’s cut the outlook on US sovereign debt to negative.

    S&P sent stocks plunging worldwide when it slashed its outlook from “stable” to “negative” Monday, pointing to doubts about Washington’s ability to tackle looming debt and fiscal deficits — concerns raised by Beijing in the past.
