Late Tuesday night, a fake press release was circulated purporting that SEIU had pulled the endorsement of President Obama made by SEIU members on November 16. Staff and members of the media then spent a few colorful hours sorting out the real story of what happened.
So just to be clear:
We stand by our November 16, 2011 endorsement of President Obama as part of a broader '99 percent' strategy to create good jobs now, end devastating cuts to Medicare and Medicaid and require everyone to pay their fair share.
Any reports to the contrary are simply false.
