  1. If this stupid piece of crap union official would have tried to pull this idiotic stunt back in the day with the Teamsters, Hoffa would have had her fitted for concrete boots and a boat ride on Lake Michigan!

  2. Ok…if I do the math here this POS union official embezzled close to $220,000 and only had to pay back $100,000 in restitution.

    For this she only gets one day in jail and 18 months of probation!…where do I sign up!

    Crime does pay!….but there’s a special place in hell for a union official who steals $200,000 from her own union.
