Government Shutdown: EPA worker’s sob story omits role as union rep

The Associated Press may have been duped as a partisan union leader appeared on camera as a struggling worker given a furlough during the government shutdown.

Breitbart.com details how the video “EPA Worker: Furloughs Hit Employees Hard” stars “Paul Sacker is an engineer for the Environmental Protection Agency who was furloughed because of the government shutdown. Sacker says politicians don’t understand the impact the shutdown has on workers.”

Sacker discusses how the shutdown will affect him, he’ll need to dip into his savings “as the paychecks stop coming,” before stating that “the tea party that are using ideological principals to hold the government hostage.”

Breitbart outs Sacker as the president of American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 3911.

Sacker has been giving interviews discussing the woes of the shutdown with WNYC being the only media outlet making a mention of his union ties.
