This is worth posting based on the New York Post’s headline alone. However, as you read the story, it gets even better in a curious kind of way.
A union leader who was sent in to clean up the newspaper mailers union after the previous president embezzled a six-figure sum from the union yesterday admitted he also had embezzled cash from the union.
Larry DeAngelis, who was dispatched by the Communications Workers of America in mid-2008 to lead CWA Local 14170, also known as Mailers Local 6, pleaded guilty to one count of embezzling for siphoning $60,000 from the union.
DeAngelis’ confession came two days after his predecessor, Wayne Mitchell, pleaded guilty to the same charge after admitting he embezzled more than $200,000 from the union he had led for decades before he was forced out.
Wow! The CWA sent in a thief to clean up after a thief??? It’s hard to believe that any union would be that irresponsible but…
Maybe they were sniffing the glue from the envelopes?
