    Makes me sick! It’s scum like this that gives Unions a bad name! 33+ years a Local Union officer, 26 a Registry Clerk, I cannot fathom anyone taking anything, including in stewardship of someone else’s money! A troubled conscience would seem to make it not worthwhile even if you get away with it. This guy needs to be barred from APWU for life.
