The Journey Continues
Â I accept the defeat of the ethics resolution as a simple fact.
Yet, Â Schaitberger’s $1,000,000 conflict of interest around undisclosed deals is also a fact.Â
And so is his betrayal of union brother Darren Bates.
So is the rampant abuse of the $80 a day stipend by DVPs.
As is the horrible misuse of expense accounts at restaurants.
And to, the reality that the IAFF is for sale.
They are all facts.
Today’s convention action is proof of just how securely the IAFF is controlled by a set of officers who are ethically corrupt.
As one senior leader said to me about speaking out, “We just are not willing to stand in that line of fire.”
They don’t agree with what happened, they are afraid of what would happen if they spoke up.
There is a difference, a BIG difference.
Our union is ruled by fear and intimidation, something that Schaitberger is expert at.
One thing is for sure–people who really care about the future of the IAFF will not be running away, even if the number who are brave enough to speak up could fit in a phone booth–if we could find one, that is.
