SEIU is so much more than just the union partner of ACORN.  They are among the President’s top advisers. Last week when the White House released its first “visitors list” the most frequent visitor was the head of the  ACORN affiliated Union the SEIU Andrew Stern who showed up on the visitors roster twenty times.

The Union has also been acting as the President’s personal thugs. In the beginning the congressional town halls might have been loud but they were never violent, but once the Democrats began urge the SEUI to confront the opponents of Obamacare, that all changed. It started with the indecent in Saint Louis, where Kenneth Gladney was attacked by members of the SEIU. Then there was the rally in Thousand Oaks California were we learned  never say bite me to an Obama thug as a 65 year old man had his finger bitten off.

The SEIU is still in thuggery mode, the other night they sent a state worker to the hospital because he was looking to expose some of the Union’s corruption:

Ken Hamidi is a state worker at the California Franchise Tax Board. Last night he walked into a union hall in Sacramento for an SEIU local 1000 meeting.

“We had every right to be here, very simple; it wasn’t anything private or anything exclusive,” said Hamidi.

But Hamidi says the union members did not want him there.

“Three, four people jumped at me, wrestled with me, then did all that,” said Hamidi. “I was covered in blood and then over to the emergency room.”

Photos of Hamidi in the hospital show him bloodied from the brawl. So why did this happen? Besides being a state worker, Hamidi says he’s an unpaid reporter for a cable access show and a vocal critic of the SEIU. He calls the state workers’ union corrupt.

“This is a union hall that is leased and is being furnished and equipped and everything with our money,” said Hamidi.

Hamidi says he came to the hall to expose how he says SEIU union leaders are spending tens of thousands of dollars on a political race, he claims, they have no right to do. After he and a photographer walked in to the meeting, it didn’t take long for Hamidi to be right out the door and on his way to the hospital.

We called SEIU union leaders to get their side of the story, but they refused to comment.

No criminal charges have been filed in this case.
