Hoffa Campaign Busted for Laundering Dues Again

October 18, 2006: For the second time, the Election Supervisor has caught the Hoffa campaign taking union dues to fund their campaign.

On Oct. 3, the Election Supervisor ruled that Steve Mack, the brother of Hoffa running mate Chuck Mack, laundered $14,000 in members’ dues money into the Hoffa-Mack Campaign.

Hoffa’s Special Assistant Rome Aloise (Chuck and Steve Mack’s brother-in-law) was found guilty in August of laundering $15,720 of members’ money into the Hoffa campaign.

So far the Mack Family has been caught stealing $30,000 in members’ money for the Hoffa-Mack campaign. The Mack family gets over $600,000 in Teamster salaries per year. You would think they could donate their own money, like working Teamsters do.

Despite the dues-laundering scheme, Hoffa has kept both Mack and Aloise on the International payroll where they receive multiple salaries.

The Hoffa-Mack dues laundering is now under investigation by the Independent Review Board. The IRB has the power to charge and remove officials who embezzle or divert union funds for personal use.

Steve Mack has appealed the decision. Additional Local 78 members’ dues money is now being siphoned away as part of this scheme: this time to pay for Mack’s legal bills.

The Election Supervisor’s investigation and decision (2006 ESD 363) is available online at www.ibtvote.org.
