I read this article on Fox News about an SEIU employee responsible for rampant voter fraud in Houston. Is it true?
Sean Caddle does NOT work for SEIU or any SEIU local union. He worked for SEIU in Colorado between 2005 and 2007. He has not been associated with the union since. (Also not an SEIU employee - Steve Caddle, as he has been called by conservative bloggers.)
What about the organization they cite, Houston Votes. Any involvement with them?
SEIU does NOT give any money to Houston Votes or "True the Vote", the organizations listed in conjunction with this allegation.
Why would someone try to hit you with this smear?
It's a cynical attempt by the right to stoke the fears of conspiracy theorists about stolen elections. A recent PPP poll found that 20% of Americans believe ACORN will steal the 2010 elections for Democrats. ACORN, by the way, is an organization that no longer exists.
But mostly, it's because people are trying to silence and discredit a leading voice for working families in this country. SEIU is a 2.2 million member organization dedicated to lifting workers up and helping them achieve the American Dream. Right-wing extremists will stop at nothing to discredit the work our union does for workers in this country.
