J. David Cox, the national president of the American Federation of Government Employees, AFL-CIO, pledged to ignore the Supreme Court and said that he and the labor movement would “fight in the streets” against Republican governors’ supporters of voter integrity efforts.
“I’m committing myself, I’m committing our union, and the labor movement. We will not — we will not — allow Republican governors to control the vote in this country,” he said to applause. “That is a God-given right of every citizen. The right to vote! We are going to fight ‘em. We’re going to fight them in the streets. We are going to fight them anywhere. We are going to fight them! I don’t care what the Supreme Court says.”
J. David Cox made the remarks at a recent Rainbow PUSH Coalition event honoring Jesse Jackson’s 72nd birthday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
Bas--rds like this are exactly why unions are losing current and future members. I have 61 more days as a union member. They have done nothing but roll over and play dead for us. Mgmt can do virtually anything they want without a so much as a whimper from our supposed union leadership. Unions are for any thing illegal when it comes to voting. They cannot win without violence and ghost voters. They cannot stand the truth. All they want is power and money out of the member's pockets and then the tax payer.
