In a rather interesting mailer sent to Oregon Residents, the ALF-CIO seems to indicate that they know how people voted in previous elections. Union Label has more…
A mailer sent to Oregon voters by the AFL-CIO warns that their voting history is a matter of public record, Breitbart.com reported Wednesday.
“Your voting history is a matter of public record,” the mailer declares, implying that the union can determine how people vote.
“The reverse cover of the pamphlet features an historic photograph of a union strike, in which the worker in front is carrying a poster that reads: ‘DO NOT CROSS OUR PICKET LINE,’” Breitbart News said.
The blogger who sent the mailer to Breitbart wrote that the union calls “all the time” asking “all sorts of questions about who we would vote for.” The blogger wrote that “if we say ‘we will NOT vote for Obama,’ they hang up.”
We know how you vote and we know where you live.
Indeed. While the voting records do show that a person voted, it does not show HOW they voted. But, I would guess that the AFL-CIO is relying on voters to not know that, and be afraid that thugs might pay them a visit.
I wonder how many people will be afraid, and how many more will be angered. A lot of people don’t take kindly to thinly veiled threats. This little exercise might just backfire.
