FROM JIM HOFT, a first-person account of SEIU violence at the Russ Carnahan town meeting. Racial epithets and a beating from union members? Incredible. “Tomorrow, Saturday, the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition is holding a rally at the local SEIU headquarters. We are going to demand justice for Kenneth Gladney, who was brutally beaten on Thursday night. The St. Louis Coalition will request that the NAACP and the ACLU come out in support of Kenneth Gladney’s rights which were trampled by the union hooligans.”

UPDATE: More here, and a Mary Katharine Ham interview. “SEIU Representative Punched Him In the Face.”
