U.S. Attorney says government can still seek to take auto workers union control: Detroit News

(Reuters) - The U.S. government may still seek to take control of the United Auto Workers Union (UAW) once its investigators determine the depths of corruption in the union, U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider said in an interview with Detroit News on Sunday.

U.S. prosecutors are currently investigating former members of the union in connection with a corruption probe. A former UAW board member has been charged with conspiring with other union leaders to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars of rank-and-file members’ dues.

“Government oversight of the UAW is a possible solution to reforming the union,” said Schneider, who is leading the probe. He added that pushing for federal oversight of the UAW is a little premature.

“We need to work through these criminal cases before we determine how we are going to go forward,” Schneider said.

before we are kicked to the curb in the blue tsunami that we know is going to make us shit ourselves.

5. If they do this though I want some government oversight then of the NRA.

After all if the NRA is willing to commit a crime in taking Russian money to help prop up pro Russian Republicans then that is clearly an issue worthy of the feds taking control of them to clean house.

6. Which is a completely absurd argument for the GOP to make as that is actually part of its job as

written in the same Constitution the GOP loves to wave around when it comes to anything to do with laws regarding guns.
