It is no surprise that innocent victims are fighting state unions who, in cahoots with the California Democratic Legislature and Gov. Gray Davis, conspired to confiscate $45 million a year from 75,000 state employees as a payback for union election contributions ["Cal State Professors Sue State, Union Over Dues," Feb. 25].
Workers found their salaries attached by unions that want money to finance their liberal politics and maintain their power.
The union and government taking are no different than a gang claiming its turf by shaking down people in its jurisdiction. What has happened to this country when the taking of private property is enacted by a Democratic Legislature and Gov. Davis as a payback to a third party for putting them in power through fortunes given in campaign contributions?
