    Secret Backroom Agreement EXPOSED!

    Secret meetings, secret deals. Flowery talk on the surface, crooked deals and corruption behind closed doors, backroom promises in exchange for money and support, mob deals, etc. Is there no limits to what a corrupt Senator will stoop to?

    I never trusted the guy - Barack Obama. I've posted about his shady business dealings in the past, his lack of character, his ties with the mob, and his very tight ties with the big union bosses.

    I even detailed the legal problems of various crime bosses - the first 5 weeks of 2008. There are many more since then. Typical mob crimes - embezzling, bank fraud, false statement and representation, theft, forgery, mail fraud, falsifying union records, racketeering, filing false union reports, grand larceny, etc.

    I made the claim that these were the type of people and crimes Senator Obama feels at home with. Now today, in the WSJ article Obama Says Teamsters Need Less Oversight, my stance has (again) been proven true.

    The Teamsters - headed up by James P. Hoffa, son of Jimmy Hoffa has endorsed Senator Obama earlier this year. Turns out boss Hoffa had a private talk with the corrupt Senator about what he is expected to do in exchange for the Teamster union pumping millions into his election bid for president.

    So Obama gets their money and the unions get the promise that Obama will support ending the strict federal oversight - imposed on unions to root out corruption and monitor for mob activities.

    Don't expect Senator Obama to come clean with all the other secret back room promises to other organizations. From protecting unions to promoting a return to the racist past this guy is trouble - with a capital T.

    Let's peek at April's tally from the U.S. Department of Labor ESA - not quite the clean slate the unions or Senator Obama wants people to know about:
