I just want to add my voice in support of Doug Bandow’s excellent piece on union elections. How anybody, and I do mean ANYbody, can look themselves in the mirror after saying that it is a fair thing to GET RID OF SECRET BALLOTS is beyond me. I’m all for workers’ rights — which is why I am for their right to do the ordinary thing in a country with republican (small ‘r’) traditions: Vote by secret ballot. The legislation at hand would take that away, and every Member of Congress who votes for it should have that vote hung around his neck like a scarlet letter — and punished for it by the voters.
