After AFSCME President Gerald McEntee backed Rahm Emanuel in the Chicago mayoral race, here's what Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez, another mayoral contender, had to say about it:
"This is the same Rahm Emanuel who said 'Fuck the UAW!' " Gutierrez characterized McEntee's endorsement of Emanuel as "a disgrace to the labor movement. ... What about all my years paying dues as an AFSCME member or all those year walking picket lines as Congressman? I guess that counts for nothing," Gutierrez continued.
UPDATE: The journalistic scope of the publication In These Times, as I was notified, reaches far beyond anti-corporatism. In These Times describes itself, in the "about" section of its website, as "a nonprofit and independent newsmagazine committed to political and economic democracy and opposed to the dominance of transnational corporations and the tyranny of marketplace values over human values."
