AFL-CIO Calls For Romney Adviser To Resign Over Ties To Labor Board Ethics Violations

Last week, the inspector general for the National Labor Relations Board released a report showing that Republican NLRB member Terrence Flynn leaked information regarding to the board’s activities to 2012 GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s labor adviser, Peter Schaumber. Today, the AFL-CIO called for both Schaumber and Flynn to resign their respective posts. The findings “will be a test for candidate Romney,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in a statement. “Allowing Schaumber to remain as an advisor will speak volumes about candidate Romney and the value he places on ethics in government officials. He should renounce these violations and dismiss Schaumber.”
