What do you do if you're up to your eyeballs in snot and someone throws a turd at your head? In Andy Sterns' case, he quits the SEIU and becomes a corporate dude. This may be why:
John Harris relays a meeting on Nov. 3, 2008 with himself, two union leaders -- Andy Stern and Tom Balanoff -- and the governor.
In a previous call played to jurors, Harris testified he and Blagojevich understood the two were approaching him on behalf of Obama's camp.
The meeting happened one day before the presidential election and the talk was about the senate seat vacancy the major campaign donors expected would happen the next day.
Reproach? Nah. They're above it.
