Uh oh. Tom Balanoff, a top Service Employee International Union [SEIU] official, is at the heart of the Blogo investigation due to heavy-handed scheming to secure a union-friendly Senator in the empty seat. It gets better. The SEIU spent $29.2 million to support Obama's campaign this year. Balanoff admits that his political ties with Obama stretch back some 15 years. The Federal affidavid says that Blago approached SEIU, hoping that the union officials would reach out to Obama to get him the Change to Win job. In return, Blago would appoint Senate Candidate #1 -- Obama's longtime friend Valerie Jarrett. Oopsy Daisy.
