Bill Clinton says he witnessed voter suppression

"This is ludicrous," Culinary Workers political director Pilar Weiss told Politico. She said the union is "aware that some workers aren't going to vote our way" and doesn't engage in intimidation.

"The fact that they lost a lawsuit aimed at suppressing workers' votes, and that now they're trying to hold on to these baseless claims is ridiculous," she said.

Having been involved with unions over the years and after working in politics as a Republican none of this is a surprise to me. Union goons intimidate-that what they're for. If things don't go your way-run for the lawyers and try to change the rules. What is refreshing is that, for the moment, Democrats are doing it to each other-not to me.
