Public sector unions dominate political campaign donations

When speaking of political donations the main stream media likes to bring up the idea of rich companies donating to conservative candidates.  This probably does happen from time to time, but the big story coming out of the 2010 election was how big a stick the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) swings.  In fact public employee unions were the single biggest campaign contributors in 2010, beating out all other groups, and donating nearly exclusively to Democrats.

Public sector unions

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

These aren't the droids you're looking for!

The Americans are nowhere near Baghdad!

I did not have sex with that woman!

There's no corrupt relationship between unions and politicians!

Nothing to see here...move along... Whistling
