Some politicians immediately shredded their ties with the Ironworkers, the local now a festering corpse. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Allyson Schwartz sent her $10,000 contribution to a firefighters charity, while state Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said he would return his $7,500 donation.Ouch.
"The greater outrage is how many of these politicians or members of the judiciary have prostituted themselves for votes," a former federal investigator said. "This is an epidemic that has never been treated because, unfortunately, there are too many politicians and other interest groups that don't have the backbone to stand up to the unions."
