Meet the Democrats' Partners
It's odd when you think about it. The beloved Kennedys made their mark chasing Jimmy Hoffa for his union's gangster ties. Then the Dems become business partners with the partners of the Mob. Go figure.
All these bullshit critics keep saying we’re connected to the mob. Let me tell you something, Frank. Without them the Teamsters wouldn’t be where we are today. I couldn’t have done it without them… I decided to use the mob and they’ve used me.
But I’ve used them for the benefit of rank and file and I believe I’ve used them more than they’ve used me. Chrissakes, anybody thinks you can run a fucking union like the Teamsters without the help of the mob has got to be stupid.
