Former SEIU boss jailed, media yawns

Thomas Lifson
Imagine if an official of a major conservative organization received 25 year prison sentence for child molestation. Would the media avert their eyes? Yet the head of the Sacramento chapter of major Obama ally, the Service Employees International Union, a man who represented thousands of state employees, received this sentence earlier this week, and the media yawned. Here is an account from the website of a local television station in Sacramento:

A former union official and California Department of Insurance employee was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison after entering no contest pleas to charges of child molestation, possession of child pornography, and manufacturing child pornography.

Jaime Enrique Feliciano, who served as a chapter president of Service Employees International Union Local 1000, which represents thousands of Sacramento-area state workers, had previous convictions for child molestation and failure to register as a sex offender.
