Amidst the brouhaha over the labor bosses’ PAC “Worker’s Voice” ads ripping Allen in Northern Virginia, many of us in the rightosphere wondered why the union folks were suddenly ignoring the plight of their brothers and sisters in the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) who are losing employment in heavy numbers in southwest Virginia due to President Obama and Tim Kaine’s determination to shut down coal production (Shaun Kenny at BD). Well, the folks at WV were good enough to answer, via Twitter:
@WorkersVoice: @bearingdrift sorry to burst your conspiracy bubble, but we’ve had these ads for weeks. Just waited for conventions to end to run them.
So…they’ve been ignoring the Obama/Kaine War on Coal “for weeks.”
I’m glad that’s been cleared up!
