Comment of the Day: Union Leaders, Corrupt and Not
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We wrote about a married couple indicted for embezzling and living luxuriously off the funds of a union local here.

Union bosses doing what they do best - catching and prosecuting the small number of corrupt individuals in their midst and ensuring the security of the rest of their union members. @Ed Huklse - did you happen to catch the part where this investigation came at the request of the main office of the IUOE? Hmm, I bet that office consists of union bosses who are higher up than Witt and don't want their members ripped off.
