(Warner Todd Huston) – Eddie Rodzwicz (don’t ask me to pronounce that one) is sure to claim he was railroaded. Like a good union thug he’ll likely try to blame everyone else. But whatever Ed claims about the charges filed against him it seems he’s run off the rails. It’s charges of bribe taking and soliciting bribes being pressed against Rodzwicz we are told.
It seems that this union criminal got up a full head of steam and chugged forward toward his troubles by contacting an attorney that was supposed to be taken off the union approved vender list because of the lawyer’s ethical problems and asking for a $20,000 bribe to surreptitiously leave the lawyer on the list despite the ruling against the lawyer. That way, if the lawyer would remit the $20,000 bribe, the union chief gets some tender in his box and the lawyer can keep getting union business.
Unfortunately for the bribe engineer the lawyer contacted the feds to let them know that the union boss was the little engine that could… take a bribe or two.
Did I mention that Ed Rodzwicz is the chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen?
