Here is how the union explains why we are in the habit of endorsing horrible candidates.
1. We don’t want to look partisan and like we always support the same party.
2. The evil candidate will win anyway and if we endorse we stand a chance of the evil candidate being open to hearing us out in the future.
I’m unconvinced because I asked for an example of when an evil candidate actually stood with us on an issue and none were forthcoming.
Unlike other people, I’m not leaving the union over this. But I’d be lying if I said this didn’t bother me.
