Photo shop experts:
Can anyone tell if those photos (splashed all over the RW sites) of SEIU members with Brown signs are authentic? Something stinks here, and I'd like to know.

1. The pictures may be real
But the signs could be a propaganda move. Real union members know who has their better interests at heart.

But I'd like to see an example of union signs at a Brown rally.

I am an IAM union member, and Ive had to tell my union leadershipon numerous occasionsthat they are not representing their members when they are constantly supporting Obama and democrats. None of my union member co-workers want anything to do with their socialist medicine!

8. I'm suspecting a major propaganda/sock-puppet effort by Brown's camp
I don't believe for a second that those were real SEIU members.

5. Maybe not PSed, but it wouldn't be all that hard to fake the clothing.
I know and you know that Union supports Union, but it's be really interesting to see those labels. Bet they are made in China a screen-printed here.

SEIU Ad: As Senator, Coakley Will Deliver Results For Massachusetts Families
By Mark McCullough, 202-730-07283 on December 3, 2009 12:03 PM

Boston, MA - Today, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) launched an independent expenditure radio ad highlighting Attorney General Martha Coakley's record to improve the lives of working families across the Commonwealth. The ad, titled "Responsibility," will air throughout the Boston area through election day on December 8th.

"As a U.S. Senator, Martha Coakley will continue to do what Bay State families have come to expect from her; work tirelessly to represent the hard working men and women of Massachusetts," said SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger. "The healthcare workers, social workers, security guards, janitors and other members of SEIU are proud to be involved in a massive volunteer effort to share her record on controlling the cost of healthcare, cracking down on subprime mortgages and ensuring fiscal responsibly with our neighbors because she has the values and leadership we need in Washington."

Coakley, a long-time proponent for workers rights and strict enforcer of wage and hour laws, won SEIU's endorsement in October through a member-driven process that included a candidate forum attended by hundreds of members from across the state. The SEIU Massachusetts State Council represents more than 60,000 workers and their families from SEIU Locals 1199, 615, 509, 888 and the Committee of Interns and Residents.

The ad, produced by The New Media Firm, can be heard at: http://www.seiu.org/videos/R503x64ResponsibilityFINALRa...
