    Default Investigation Details Failed Hoffa Bribery Scheme

    Just when you thought you MIGHT have some integrity, the Election Supervisor sends this across. Read it and decide for yourself.

    Throw the whole bunch of them in the slammer.Actually if this is true,they should be forced to resign or be put up on charges for corruption.

    They should be thrown out of the union. After all they are no better than anyone else. How can we trust people that do this? YOUR BROTHER ALWAYS!

    I never trusted any of them. It's been downhill since Hoffa and crew came into office. Doesn't seem like any of those "BEST CONTRACTS EVER" are working out.

    Hoffa denied any role in the scheme. The Election Supervisor did not find Hoffa credible—and credited witnesses and evidence who contradicted the cover story put forward by Hoffa, Hall, and Johnson.

    You've got to love it! I feel like we're back in the 70s and 80s. It's Fitzsimmons, Williams, Presser etc. all over again. After the great job he has been doing I wouldn't think that Hoffa had anything to worry about in the next election. Who would have thought that Pope or Gegare even had a chance of dethroning King Hoffa. Maybe there is hope.

    One can only hope and pray that he is dethroned.

    You might want to see Fred Gegare spin on this too. Fred's Spin

    FWIW there is a thread about this here too. Hoffa/Hall found corrupt by election supervisor

    It seems pretty conclusive when it comes from the office of the election supervisor. It is not going to be any slam dunk for Hoffa and Co.

    Unless these charges are really shouted from the rooftops so everyone hears and knows about them most will blindly vote for him anyway.

    I wonder how long until the right-winged, union haters pick up on this and start telling this is why the big bad unions should not be allowed in the workplace?

    Excellent point. In situations such as this, we are our own worst enemy.
