Day three and nothing but silence from the Hulburd campaign on Ben Quayle's call to return all campaign donations and renounce endorsements from the unions that are participating in the boycott of the state of Arizona.
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) have both contributed the maximum amount of $5,000 each to the Hulburd campaign and the Arizona chapter of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) has given Hulburd its official endorsement.
All three of these unions are actively participating in the boycott of the state of Arizona, with the SEIU joining the lawsuit against SB 1070. The national president of the AFL-CIO even sent a letter, urging President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to "cut all ties--including collaborations between Arizona state and local law enforcement and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security."
"Hulburd's silence in my call for him to return funds and reject the endorsements of these unions, who are proudly trying to harm the state of Arizona through the boycott, is a sign of his complicity with the union agenda in boycotting our state and overturning SB 1070," said Quayle.
"Hulburd's silence is deafening," said Quayle for Congress Communications Director Jay Heiler. "He smiles at the voters and tells them he supports SB 1070, then reaches behind his back to grab cash and endorsements from the left-wing union organizations who attack the law and lead a boycott of Arizona. Some would call that deception; some would call it hypocrisy. Whatever you call it, it's a pattern of behavior for Jon Hulburd."
