Former Union Boss Donald Snyder Charged for Embezzling $94,649


Donald Snyder is the former president of the International Association of EMTs and Paramedics in New York. The union group is also associated with the National Association of Government Employees (NAGE) Local R2-394. But as expected, Snyder has been charged with crimes relating to embezzling from union funds. The amount is suspected to total $94,649. Stealing money is just too tempting and easy to do when you have a system (ahem, forced-unionism) that allows easy access to large sums of money like this.

From the Department of Labor:

Donald Snyder […] was charged in a criminal complaint with embezzlement of union funds in the amount of $94,649, false reports required to be filed by the Secretary of Labor, and false entries in union records, in violation of 29 U.S.C. 501(c), 439(b), and 439(c), respectively. The charges follow an investigation by the OLMS Boston-Buffalo District Office and the Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General.
