Leo Gerard, the (Canadian) president of the United Steelworkers union? (Via Obama spokesflack @BenLaBolt)
Mr. Obama is committed to protecting clean air and clean water for our families while also helping the coal industry.
Or would it be… actually, hold on a second. WHO ASKED foreign-born and foreign-national union leader Gerard his opinion on the 2012 American Presidential election?

That’s how bosses and politicians in decades past justified the terrorizing of workers, the murdering of organizers.”
