Toledo Union Members Caught with a Truckload of Stolen Romney Signs
Four men caught in a Sheet Metal Workers International Association (SMWIA) truck full of Romney/Ryan signs were issued summons for receiving stolen property early Friday morning in Perrysburg. Local police responded after residents reported seeing men stealing Romney signs in the middle of the night.
A Perrysburg Police incident report published by the Ohio Liberty Coalition listed four adult males: Corey Beaubien, Christopher Monaghan, Sean Bresler, and John Russell. The police report indicated the vehicle in question was registered to SMWIA Local 33 of Parma.
John Russell and Chris Monaghan are listed as Business Agents for the unions Toledo district on the SMWIA Local 33 website.
Additionally, Facebook accounts appearing to belong to Beaubien, Monaghan, and Russell identify the three as employees of SMWIA Local 33.
Monaghan, age 41, uses as his profile picture a Yes on 2″ logo supporting the ballot issue from union front Voters First Ohio. He lists The Ed Show on MSNBC as his favorite TV show, and Likes union front We Are Ohio as well as a page titled I will vote for Barack Obama in 2012.
Russell, age 39, Likes Obama for America Ohio.
Beaubien, age 37, Likes Barack Obama, Obama for America Ohio, and Sherrod Brown.
The Sheet Metal Workers Local 33 Toledo page on Facebook is awash in liberal talking points promoting Obama and attacking Romney. An October 27 status update pleading with members to help distribute campaign literature closed with, We have 10 days left lets not wake up on Wednesday with our heads hung low because we lost. Remember right to work for less will be the death of us all.

Union members are generally thugs.
Couldn’t hold back a chortle when I saw their ages, expected early twenties or thereabouts.
They may be adults but they're not grown-ups.
Union thugs just showing Americans what they are. Those Romney signs would not have generated a fraction of the votes that revealing the true character Obama filth will do.
Just another reason the screw anyone that belongs to a union.
All union web sites are full of demonrat crap.
Communist union thugs. You just can’t trust those knuckledragging Neanderthals. They’ll steal you blind every time.
Rats, they stole my sign so now I have to vote for Obama? Is that how this works?
Yup I was well on my way to getting over stupid by the time I was 30. These are perpetual stupids.
And you can bet those four were prepared to beat up anyone who resisted the thefts.
Many rank-and-file union memebrs are voting for Romney on Tuesday, as they have voted for the GOP every election in their lives.
“John Russell and Chris Monaghan are listed as Business Agents for the unions Toledo district on the SMWIA Local 33 website.”
But, scumbag “business agents” are professional union employees with no skills who produce nothing and they deserve whatever you can dish out to them!
throw the book at ‘em.
Rank and file union members that vote republican need to actively fight against their unions until there are no more unions. In the mean time, I try my best to stay away from union made products.
There's the problem. One worlders. Global communists. I guess the "of America" thing got too "jingoistic" for the "progressive" knuckledraggers.
Sheet Metal Workers International Association
True—But it would still be nice to see them swing for this.
Part of their punishment should be to put each sign back where they found it and apologize to the homeowner. Of course, they each are following by a security person and their fine will well pay for security.
Sounds like the union should be hit with a civil RICO action.
I was a fully conservative AFL-CIO member. Pretty much all of my neighbors are conservative union members. My immediate neighbor is a 30 year UAW man who voted for Santorum in the primary and now has a Romney/Ryan sign tacked to his deck.
Its like anywhere else. Conservatives tend to gather in some places and liberals tend to gather in others. Plus we’re a forced union state so far and that means consevatives end up in the union.
My company won’t allow us to disband our useless unions (RTW state). They use the union as an auxilliary HR dept because they don’t want to negotiate contracts with individuals.
Unions are an artifact from another time. They served their purpose, but the new economy should have employees banding together to buy controlling interest in their company rather than fighting the shareholders in battles the employees can never win. Its just stupid to fight the company as an adversary when you could be buying it.
This shows the stupidity of these folks. Do they actually believe removing a Romney sign will make people not vote for him? If that was true I’d have a garage full of obama signs. Well, actually I’ve only see a couple.
Name: Corey J Beaubien
Location: Toledo, Ohio
I don’t agree with them on all things but we would all be better off if their union operated on conservative principles. They do support right to work and their leader has testified against political fundraising on capitol hill.
Time for a class action civil rights lawsuit against the Union. Get their money.
“Communist union thugs.”
They were very stupid to do that. With the massive number of Conceal Carry holders as well as Stand Your Ground laws in not only Ohio but almost every state, you would think twice about doing something like that. Maybe 15-20 years ago but not now. They were darn lucky this time. Next time this happens................
My dad was an old union man, he was a steamfitter and a pipefitter. By the end of his days he realized that the thugs running his union had never broke a sweat in their lives and wouldn’t know a Stillson wrench from a Cappuccino.
I’ll Never forget him saying to me “Don’t tell your mother I voted for Reagan”
ESOPs have been a mixed bag. The real key is to make sure the decision-making process is clear. Someone has to have vision in a changing world.
But all employees should be striving for higher equity in their companies.
“Rats, they stole my sign so now I have to vote for Obama? Is that how this works?”
ROFLMAO! That that right there is funny...i don’t care who you are! :-)
NOW I’m for Sharia law. Cut their hands off.
If the opposition is stealing your yard signs “ It’s OVER”!!
(Sung to "Beautiful Dreamer")
Beautiful Teamsters, please let me join.
Can't drive a truck, but I'm willing to loin.
Beautiful Teamsters, I love youse all.
That's why I'm standing by your union hall.
I would be proud to carry my load.
Help all the drivers stuck by the road.
Beautiful Teamsters, driving by night.
Pass on the left side, but not on the right.
Wouldst you would take me, life would be sweet.
Then I could eat where the truck drivers eat.
Beautiful Teamsters, I'll pay the dues.
Give me the news that I'm now one of youse.
Crossing state lines with no opposition,
Thanks to the Interstate Commoice Commission.
Driving through sleet and blizzard and shower.
Blocking each street at the peak of rush hour.
Tossing big boxes into the air,
'Specially the ones that say, "Handle With Care."
Beautiful Teamsters, won't you take me,
Or I'll to back to practicing brain soigery.
Remember right to work for less will be the death of us all.
These nitwits need to take a long look at where good paying jobs are going and where jobs are dying
But, scumbag business agents are professional union employees with no skills who produce nothing and they deserve whatever you can dish out to them!
If caught in Texas, whatever you can dish out, includes shooting if it is after dark. It should be the same everywhere
