On June 28, SEIU boss Attia Little was charged with embezzlement. Then just three days later, she pleaded guilty to the act. Not only this, but details came out on how the money she embezzled was used.
From the Department of Labor:
On July 1, 2022, in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Attia Little, former Property Services Division Operations Manager for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) (located in Washington, D.C.), pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement from a labor organization and one count of conspiracy to commit embezzlement from a labor organization, in violation of 29 U.S.C. 501(c) and 18 U.S.C. 371, respectively. Little pleaded guilty to embezzling $503,600 from the union by using the union credit card to purchase personal items, to pay several shell companies created by Little and her co-conspirator, to purchase more than $200,000 in gift cards that she used for personal purchases, and booking personal travel costs for family, friends, and associates through the union’s travel booking platform and then keeping the money that they paid to a fake company that she created. The guilty plea follows an investigation by the OLMS Washington District Office and the Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General.DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
That money was collected from hard-working Americans with the promise to be used to help improve working conditions. Instead, it was stolen and used frivolously by a union boss – someone who is supposed to be dedicated to helping workers.
