CPAC Protestors Admit to Being Paid by Union--UPDATE! AFL-CIO President lies about paying Protestors (Click on "Read More")

As a follow-up to the CPAC protestor who admitted to being paid (and not having a clue as to what they were protesting), Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO was asked about the situation and his response is interesting. Pay particular attention at the 1:34 mark where Trumka says "I know who gets..."--he catches himself before he says the word "paid." Here's the link:

Still trying to figure out how a story about young people's social lives has anything to do with the president of the AFL-CIO lying about paying protestors.

It's possible they thought they were going to meet Sandra Fluke.

You're right. Sandra would be disappointed that they apparently had to pay for their contraceptives.
