Of course she is.
Never in a million years could you expect the Elaine Chao— the U.S. Secretary of Labor and wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell— to handle the concerns of 25,000 people with openness, honesty and respect. That would require a shred of decency that doesn’t seem to exist anywhere in the current Bush Administration.
We’d love to be able to report that the actions of Chao’s agency and the staff of that agency weren’t constantly embarrassing the United States across the world.
We have some big news following yesterday’s attempted delivery of 25,000 letters to Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao. After holding our photo-op on the front steps of the Department of Labor, we gave the box full of signatures to Elaine’s employees to bring into the Department of Labor.
But they were met by the head of DOL security, who said he monitored our website and would not allow the letters to be delivered to Elaine Chao. From the employees’ union press release:
Attorney Alex Bastani, the President of Local 12, tried to bring the petition signed by 25,000 Americans into the Department of Labor main building. Mr. Bastani was about to place the petition through the x-ray machine at the Department entrance when he was stopped by the Head of Department of Labor Security, Mr. J. Thomas Holman II. The petition, a stack of paper, was approximately the size of a phone book. Mr. Holman stated he had been monitoring the Shame on Elaine website, and that he would not allow the letters to be delivered to Secretary Chao.
