Federal employee groups step up political efforts as fall elections approach
NTEU had been working on nonpartisan voter registration efforts before the union formally endorsed Obama, but President Colleen M. Kelley said NTEU would be organizing local endorsements for Obama, running education efforts and turning out union members to vote and participate in campaign events. She said the union would target Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
“NTEU chapters around the country are gearing up their efforts to help NTEU secure a ‘pro-federal employee’ president,” Kelley said.

Personally, I think we need to take steps to stop this kind of contribution from within federal unions.
Actually, when one looks at the open secrets link it clearly shows just how socialist our government truly is on the inside!
And quite frankly, it scares me. From that one link I conclude there is no longer anyway for the average citizen to have honest dealings with any part of the Federal Government.
There is already a law against it.
It’s called the Hatch act, but it appears that it has become another law Obama decided to ignore.
He ignores some laws and makes others doing pretty much whatever he wants to do.
I guess it must be OK though because the Congress and the Supreme Court both ignore his shenanigans.
