Nothing to see here! Move along. Nothing to see here!

Well, well, well. What do we have here? An FBI raid on the offices of both, Queens Democrat Assemblyman Brian McLaughlin and the New York City Central Labor Council, which is an organization that represents almost 400 unions.

The raid is part of an FBI investigation into whether or not millions in contracts for electrical work in the city were bid on illegal or in other words rigged.

Obviously everyone is innocent until proven guilty but I don’t think anyone would be surprised that a Democrat who gets huge campaign contributions from labor unions aided them in closing inflated contracts at the expense of the taxpayer.

What I want to know is how can Brian McLaughlin be both a Queens Assemblyman representing taxpayers like me and the elected President of the Central Labor Council? That’s a conflict of interest if I ever saw one!

Republicans have been wondering how you gain seats in the Council and Assembly. Well there you go.
