Former leader of major California union faces theft, tax charges
After a years-long probe, Tyrone Freeman, once a rising star in the nation’s labor movement, is indicted on federal charges of stealing from SEIU workers to enrich himself. The 15-count indictment, which also contains allegations that he violated tax laws and gave false information to a mortgage lender, carries combined maximum prison sentences of more than 200 years.
Remember this the next time a goon or Occupy sympathizer gets in your face and tells you how wonderful their union is. There’s no way Tyrone Freeman is an anomaly.
