The reason behind Democurmudgeon is to point out the hypocrisy, deception and failure of the conservative movement. Thanks to CrooksandLiars.com, this piece stood out as a warning to those who don’t pay that much attention to the details. In fact, I’m not sure I would have checked out the group behind this anti-union ad running in MN’s Franken v Coleman race.
MN Senate Race: “Reality Check” Pwns Anti-Worker Astroturf Ad Against Al Franken features MN’s WCCO CH4 news’ “Reality Check” segment, that destroys, point-by-point, a new intentionally misleading Sopranos-spoof TV ad by the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, which is actually a cartel of national business groups including the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) and Wal-Mart, masquerading as a pro-union, pro-worker group on behalf of Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) against his Democratic challenger Al Franken.
The law this ad denounces would actually make it easier for workers to organize unions.
