Washington Free Beacon Ron Kuley, IAFF Local 2068 member and snuggled-up Schaitberger lapdog, is peddling an internet story lauding the IAFF for sitting out the 2016 US presidential election.

A Toady, a Weasel and Some Swine Several people have now reported that Mark Ouellette, IAFF Eastern District Trustee, amply confirmed his membership in the Fools Hall of Fame when he went to the microphone at the recent IAFF convention and made insulting and absurd statements.

Cameron Abell Writes “I was also thoroughly disgusted with the Eastern Trustee’s speech that equated anyone who questions any E-Board member as “Swine.” GP, GST, and any E-board member is “Beyond Reproach.” Despite my disgust, It was a fitting way to end that convention, keep the theme consistent at least…Shady, Snide, and Steamrolled.”

MDA: Stop the Great IAFF Rip-Off

Entry Img

Over, But Not Really It’s O-Fish-All, IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger crushed opposition, both in committee and on the convention floor, designed to stop his administration from skimming money meant for sick children.
