More Lies From DNC- Steelworker Did Not Work For Bain

More lies from the Democratic National Convention.

According to ABC News (and kudos to them for breaking the story), David Foster- one of several steelworkers speaking at the DNC- was introduced as one of three “former employees of companies controlled by Bain Capital” who had been mercilessly fired from the company when it went bankrupt.

Trouble is he was actually a union organizer who wasn't even on GST Steel's payroll other than being a union lead negotiator, so was never  "fired", so to speak.

“David Foster was never an employee of GST Steel’s Kansas City plant. He was employed by the United Steelworkers of America as their regional union director to represent GST Steel, but was not employed at our facility,” according to BC Huselton, who was head of HR at GST.

Lumping in Foster with two former employees, if they indeed were, makes one assume he too worked at Bain. He did not!

Independent Journal Review is spot on when it says:

Leave it to the Democrat Party to get a union negotiator to give a prime-time speech to the American people, who then misrepresents his position with a company for political purposes, and acts as if people are entitled to a job and a certain salary at a private company.
The Democrats will do anything to win, and the people who vote for them are too ignorant or blind to question.
