Misc. Mondays: NLRB Head Former Union Lawyer Who Supports EFCA

Beginning today, Mondays are dedicated to miscellaneous topics/updates that do not necessarily warrant a full day to themselves, but nonetheless are newsworthy.

Obama named Wilma Liebman chair of the National Labor Relations Board, the head of the judicial body that governs over the National Labor Relations Act.  Liebman began her career in 1974 as an NLRB staff attorney, then served on the legal staff of two labor unions (International Brotherhood of Teamsters and International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen).  She has been a member of “the Board” since being appointed to it by Bill Clinton in 1997 and has consistently “used her seat to do Big Labor’s bidding and trample upon employee freedom.”  She is hardly an impartial judge and likely the prototypical Obama appointment to the Board; unfortunately, Obama gets 3 more appointments.
