Rome A Under Criminal Investigation
The main question is, "Will he rat out anyone else?"
TDU. It's all their fault.
If its on the TDU website, it might as well be on the National Enquirer.
The last few pages of the Teamster magazine is parallel to the National Enquirer except that sadly it's proven to be factual.
It's hard to sidestep or deflect that little problem.
Maybe people should quit putting bullets in TDU's gun.
Wasn't the National Enquirer the ones who broke the John Edwards affair story?
Didn't that turn out to be true?
What you really should be wondering about, is RA going to rat out anyone else to get a reduced sentence?
He is going to prison after all.
RA will not only be expelled from the union for life. He will be forced to cut a deal with the Department of Justice to reduce his sentence. If this means implicating (ratting) other top Teamster officials he will do it!
The original findings of the IRB are the least of RA worries. He's in some deep organized gangster shenanigans and the sun-of-a-gun is going down for it, AMEN!
Awwwwe, C'mon, he's innocent, at least that's what he's telling all of his supporters, fundraising from California to Las Vegas, prostituting his T-shirts out to anybody that would wear them, and trying to convince any poor slug that would listen to him that he was innocent, he's just another blackeye on the Teamsters!

Blame Obama and mitt "flip flipper" Romney!!
Blah Blah blah, bet you he won't do any time.
Depends on who he Rats out
Nothing that he supposedly did will get him in trouble. OJ killed two people and walked. TDU is hell bent on seeing Teamsters that don't agree with their twisted ideals, kicked out of the Union.
Your post doesn't make any sense.
OJ has nothing to do with this situation, and TDU is not the prosecuter here.
RA appears guilty of accepting company bribes to push through union contracts.
That's very typical for H, always siding with the company during contract negotiations.
The IRB isn't just pushing that RA should be b removed from his position and banned from union office for a set time.
They are pushing for criminal prosecution.
That means prison if found guilty.
If you were RA, and they offered something else besides prison, wouldn't you jump at that offer?
The prosecuters just want him to talk.
You mean the same group that needs to justify their existence before their demise? And FYI, TDU is in bed with the government.
Did he steal money? No. Did he kill someone? No. He will be fine
Allegation 1: "Rome used his position to get friends/family hired." Nothing illegal about this. It happens in public/private sector in all Unions.
Allegation 2: "Received Superbowl party tickets." He didn't use them. He asked for them. Again, nothing illegal about this.
Webster's defines that as nepotism.
Allegation 3:" Aloise financed and coordinated an illegal campaign against members of Local 601 who ran for office against an Aloise ally." If he used Union funds and there is proof (paper trail), he can repay the amount and probably be temporarily suspended.
Yes and nepotism is not illegal.
