WASHINGTON — The feds are probing former labor leader Andy Stern — one of the most frequent visitors to the Obama White House last year — in a corruption investigation of the Service Employees International Union, according to sources who have been interviewed and media reports.
The FBI and Labor Department investigators are examining $150,000 in fees that an ex-California union boss got as part of an alleged no-work job, and are looking into the details of a $175,000 advance that Stern got in a deal for his book, “A Country That Works.”
Stern, who unexpectedly quit his union post last summer, was the top visitor to the White House in 2009, going there 24 times that year alone.
The White House had no response.
Natch. Let the stonewalling begin.
