Senator Jim DeMint Issues FOIA to NLRB over Boeing Controversy

When Boeing announced that it would be opening up a plant in South Carolina, it caught the attention of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which filed a complaint against the aircraft manufacturer. Why? Because South Carolina is a right-to-work state. The NLRB should have no influence whatsoever over such a decision made by Boeing. South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint wants answers as to what drove this complaint. He has submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in hopes of getting those answers:

Via Daily Caller:
Republican Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina requested documents from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Monday, in connection with the ongoing lawsuit over Boeing moving a production plant to Charleston, S.C.

The request, made through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), seeks documents pertaining to the NLRB’s decision to go after Boeing’s decision to relocate to a right-to-work state. Specifically, it includes communications between NLRB and union officials at the International Association of Machinists (IAM) and officials in Congress and the Obama Administration.

The FOIA letter was sent to Lafe Solomon, Acting General Counsel at the NLRB, and Jacqueline Young, General Counsel and FOIA Officer at the NLRB.
In DeMint's letter, he makes it explicitly clear that he wants to know if union members bought access to the NLRB. If so, this could be yet another significant scandal brewing for the Obama administration.

HERE is a copy of the letter.
