Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

There They Go Again


Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg, 6th District Congressional Candidate, has joined the Al Franken bandwagon. On EFCA, Tinklenberg is using the same “intimidation” fig leaf to cover up the same dirty little secret: They are doing the bidding of the Washington union special interests at the expense of Minnesota workers.

It’s not hard to figure out that, when 95% of Minnesotans support keeping their private ballot right, it takes a pretty powerful force to move politicians off of that issue. That powerful force in this case is the big money union campaign contributions and union political muscle being employed on behalf of Tinklenberg.

Like Al Franken, Elwyn Tinklenberg is also willing to smear thousands of honest, hard working 6th district business owners with his accusations of intimidation. His wild, unsubstantiated charges are hardly representative of a thoughtful, moderate legislator. They are fitting of the extremely liberal constituency groups that dominate today’s Democrat party.
