The New York Post has an excellent piece on the astonishing frequency of embezzlement among union leaders:

Remember why unions were formed in the first place -- to protect workers from being taken advantage of?

Nowadays, the rank-and-file mostly need protection from their own leadership.

Daniel Hughes, former head of the Field Supervisor Association representing Port Authority workers, pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court this week to looting $300,000 in members' dues over five years.

The union heavyweight allegedly used the money for Queens hotel trysts with hookers, casino getaways and high-priced dinners.

A rare occurrence? Hardly.

Read on and try not to let your jaw hit the floor as the Post details eight more high-profile cases of union embezzlement in just the last year.
