How’s this for shameless. The unions who support eliminating the secret ballot are trying to promote their cause by linking their effort to Iranian protesters angry at having their secret ballot stolen.
Or maybe I’m being too pessimistic. Perhaps Card Check’s supporters have turned over a new leaf – impressed and moved by the videos from Iran of thousands of protesters insisting on the sanctity of the secret ballot. After all, it’s fairly obvious that people ought to have the right to a secret ballot on important votes. Even the unions wouldn’t be deceitful and hypocritical enough to try to associate their cause with its opposite, right?
