SEIU & Blago?

A reader suggests that maybe Andy Stern’s sudden resignation has something to do with the Blago case. I did a quick search of the proffer  and while Stern’s name doesn’t come up, there are plenty of damning references to SEIU. Food for thought. For instance:

Later on November 5, 2008 (Blagojevich Call #281), Blagojevich spoke to Advisor B about Blagojevich’s interest in getting a private foundation job. Blagojevich told Advisor B that SEIU and the president-elect could remove the head of a particular foundation and give the position to Blagojevich. Blagojevich told Advisor B that it was unlikely that he would be able to get a cabinet position in exchange for the Senate seat, but “Health and Human Service would be my . . . I’d take that in a second.”
