BREAKING: NLRB's General Counsel resigns while Harkin tries to sneak Becker in the back door

NRLB General Counsel Announces Resignation
An anonymous source alerted us earlier that NLRB General Counsel Ronald Meisburg (bio here), today announced his resignation effective June 20 RATHER THAN SERVING OUT HIS TERM WHICH ENDS ON AUGUST 14....a mere 24 days.  He has accepted a position at the law firm, Proskauer Rose LLP.  This gives President Obama the ability to immediately nominate another union cronie to the NLRB as general counsel.

Harkin Tries to Sneak Becker Through the Back Door
In other NLRB-related news, last Thursday, Sen. Tom Harkins (D-IA) attempted to sneak recess-appointed, SEIUer Craig Becker onto a full term at the NLRB by attempting to move the Senate to unanimous consent on 80 Obama nominations (see Becker on page 9 of this PDF).  Harkin's move was blocked by Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
