You Stay Classy, Billy Hunter
There are a lot of ways to know that your union boss is a huge sleaze bag*, but if he gives this quote after an investigation into the union's finances, you should raise the red flags from half- to full-mast. "While I strongly disagree with some of the findings contained in the report, I am pleased it recognized that I have not engaged in criminal acts nor was I involved in misappropriation of union funds." Note that he's glad there were no criminal acts FOUND, not that he didn't engage in inappropriate behavior -- like giving himself a $3 million salary without proper approval. You stay classy, Billy Hunter * Common ones include being buried in the Meadowlands, being in the mob, and just being a union boss.
