| You might remember union rallies across the nation during the Wisconsin recall elections. They were there to show solidarity with their Wisconsin Union Brothers and Sisters against common sense reforms.
One such rally took place in February of 2011. The Massachusetts AFL-CIO used to have a video of the rally on their website. The video showed, then Union Secretary and sitting State Representative Marty Walsh leading the rally at the State House. The video is no longer available on the website. It is important to note that Marty Walsh was the secretary-treasurer and general agent of the Boston Building Trades council from 2010 to April of 2013 when he resigned to run for Mayor.
According to Walsh's Statements of Financial Interest filed with the Ethics Commission of the Commonwealth, the union position paid Walsh over $100,000.
Luckily for the voters of Boston, Red Mass Group found a copy of the erased video, uploaded by someone else on You Tube. Here it is.
In the video you see Representative Walsh lead a chant of Union, Union, Union. A very high brow argument to stay the least. What is really interesting is what the $100K+ union representative says after the Union Chant.
Read the text of Walsh's remarks after the jump.
