Americans for Tax Reform and the Alliance for Worker Freedom will deliver a letter to both chambers of Congress and to US Attorney Channing Phillips in Washington DC, demanding a federal investigation of Andrew Stern, president of the SEIU.
They will claim that Stern, who stopped registering as a federal lobbyist in 2007, has continued his lobbying efforts. They claim to have compiled evidence of Stern’s lobbying from the recently released White House visitor logs, media reports — and Stern’s own Twitter feed, in what has to be a first for the social networking service.
Failure to register as a lobbyist is a criminal act, which could result in up to five years in prison and a $200,000 fine.

The Eagle Scout was volunteering just like Obama wants people to, yet his other special interest is making his idea look really bad. Yet another conflict of interest for this administration.
And yes, I think the congress and AG should act. Do I think they will? When hell freezes over. And with global warming going the way it is, that might just happen. ;oP
