NJ Union halting Out-of-State power repair crews is top Democratic donor!

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, cited in news reports for halting nonunion repair crews from helping to restore power in superstorm Sandy’s New Jersey-New York path, is one of nation’s top union donors to Democrats, a group President Obamalast year praised in a visit to an IBEW training Center.

The Center for Responsive Politics, a public political spending watchdog, said IBEW has the nation’s fifth highest spending political action committee, doling out nearly $2.3 million, 97 percent of which went to Democrats.

Among the recipients were political figures and groups in New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania, key political battleground states.
