The powerful SEIU union is trying to unionize home caregivers in Minnesota but some fishy things are going on. An investigation has revealed fake people, fake homes and more.
The Daily Signal reports:
Home Caregivers Identify Evidence of Voter Fraud in Bid to Oust Union
EDINA, Minn.—An in-home caregiver named Edison is supposed to live in a unit on the seventh floor of the Cedars of Edina apartment complex, according to a list supplied by the state government.
But when The Daily Signal tags along on a visit to the Gallagher Drive location by activists seeking to decertify the union that represents such caregivers, no one by Edison’s full name can be found in the directory of residents.
“As you can see, we scrolled through the electronic directory where the names are listed alphabetically,” canvasser Matt Patterson tells this reporter. “There is no one listed here named Edison.”
Which is odd, Patterson adds, because Edison’s name is a new one that Minnesota had just provided on a list of Medicaid-eligible home caregivers represented by the union, SEIU Healthcare Minnesota.
“We’ll want to make sure this person has actually moved and is not residing here,” he notes.
Patterson, executive director of the Washington-based Center for Worker Freedom, is working with a local lawyer to expose what they suspect is voter fraud, unauthorized collection of dues from Medicaid payments, and other illegal or improper actions connected with unionization of in-home caregivers in Minnesota.
Don’t forget, these folks have massive influence in politics, too.
And they typically support Democrats.
