    I didn't say the bribe had influence on the voting. That was to influence the company. Corker influenced the vote by assuring an expansion should the no union vote happen, and the billboards Norquist put up about Dems coming to take their guns away and fear of the Big 3 (which has absolutely nothing to do with VW). Tactics used to scare voters.

    I don't accept your characterization, but as long as they're free it doesn't matter.

    So, it's a bribe then that NY does this too?

    American unions appear to have a bright future organizing public employees and looking after the interests of their retirees.

    the problem with public unions is they hold tax payer dollars hostage. they have huge demands of government that tax payer are on the hook for. there is a conflict of interest.
    maybe if the states were making surpluses and profits then that would be different, but they don't. most states are running deficits and only balancing their books by ton's of
    cuts but still having to pay for all these huge public union demands.

    it is one of the things that brought down detriot was the loss of tax base but public union promises that they couldn't hope to keep.

    Yeah, expressing one's opinion is pretty unethical unless, of course, Rachel Maddow approves!

    Anyway, ethical or not, Corker's comments were IRRELEVANT. They do not provide an explanation for the UAW's epic defeat.
