Republicans Hate Unions? Joe Liebham says he loves 'em, noting: "News Flash: Trade Unions Donate to Republicans."

Rep. Joe Leibham, running for congress against Glenn Grothman and Duey Stroebel, wants to thank the unions for their money!!!
The Leibham magic spell?

The Trouble with Unions? Taxpayers don't actually fund Democratic campaigns, the union member does out of their wages. When Wisconsinites pay for private trade union services out of our hard earned cash, they end up ironically helping fund...Republican campaigns.

Public unions are bad because they fund Democrats; Private trade unions are good because they fund the Republicans. Oh, and throw in a few of the firefighter and police unions exempt from Act 10 while you're at it.

Liebham even broke it down for us. What a guy...:

Conservative Leaders and the Trade Union's Support:

•    FACT - It is true that the Laborers supported WI Republicans in 2012 and helped them win in an election that Wisconsin turned blue. 
For 2012, the Laborers also gave $5000 to Paul Ryan and $3000 to Sean Duffy.  You can also find multi-thousand donations to Paul Ryan in 2010,2008, 2006, 2004, 2002.

•    FACT - It is true that the Laborers have donated $300,000 to the RGA (Republican Governor Association) in the last two years. Thanks to donations like these, the RGA started this year
 with a surplus that is being applied to governor races like Scott Walker's.

•    FACT - It is true that the Laborers supported over 25 Republicans nationwide in the last cycle and helped them win federal elections.

•    FACT - It is also true that the Laborers support the Keystone Pipeline.  Along with the Republican Party, ALEC, AFP, and our primary opponents. LIUNA's support will be as critical to securing the Keystone Pipeline as a single congressman.  

•    FACT - It is also true that the Laborers support Walker's 2011 mining bill. LIUNA's support was important to securing the mine, and nearly all Republicans voted for that mine, including our primary opponents who didn't object to LIUNA back then.
•    FACT - It is also true that the Laborers now oppose Obamacare: “If the Affordable Care Act is not fixed, and it destroys the health and welfare funds that we have all fought for and stand for, then I believe it needs to be repealed,” said Terry O’Sullivan.

You gotta love those unions...the good ones.

Is the Laborer's union still controlled by organized crime?
