Chichester Edits Statements for Accuracy

New York State AFL-CIO President Denis Hughes today in support of Governor Spitzer's scheme to provide driver's licenses to illegal aliens:

“Governor Spitzer’s actions will shine a light on those who are willing to become productive members of our society and workforce (I don't care if illegal aliens broke our laws since they could become dues-paying members of my union racket one day). As such, greater scrutiny (amnesty) will reduce the opportunities for those who would otherwise take advantage of individuals willing to work and provide for their families (unlike us Carthusian Monks at the AFL-CIO who have never taken advantage of anyone). The ability to protect a workers’ livelihood is essential, regardless of immigration status (we at the ALF-CIO have a long history of corruption so don't be surprised that I just said I don't give a damn about the law).
