Barack Obama once stood in front of the SEIU and thanked them for all that they do for him. During his speech, he said that the "SEIU agenda is his agenda" and that he would work extra hard to push it forward. Just a couple of days ago, early-voting reports from Nevada emerged saying people who went to place their vote for Sharron Angle received quite a surprise: Harry Reid's name was already checked. After this, the Washington Examiner looked into the reports and found the machine techs of those voting machines were none other than SEIU members.

According to the Washington Examiner, who looked into the Nevada voting incidents:

Now there's absolutely no independently verified evidence of chicanery with the voting machines (yet), but it is worth noting that the voting machine technicians in Clark County are members of the Service Employees International Union. The SEIU spent $63 million in elections in 2008 and is planning on spending $44 million more this election cycle -- nearly all of that on Democrats. White House political director Patrick Gaspard is formerly the SEIU's top lobbyist, and former SEIU president Andy Stern was the most frequent visitor to the White House last year.
That's not all. On the issue of Arizona, SB 1070, illegal immigration, and the SEIU - Michelle Malkin reported:
Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer outlines the relationship between Barack Obama, his open-borders Big Labor buddies at the SEIU/UFCW, and Democrat gubernatorial candidate and SEIU water-carrier Terry Goddard. I call it the No Illegal Alien Union Dues-Paying Democrat Voter Left Behind Alliance Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer outlines the relationship between Barack Obama, his open-borders Big Labor buddies at the SEIU/UFCW, and Democrat gubernatorial candidate and SEIU water-carrier Terry Goddard. I call it the No Illegal Alien Union Dues-Paying Democrat Voter Left Behind Alliance. Brewer adds: The SEIU and UFCW actively supported President Obama in 2008 and have endorsed Terry Goddard for Governor in 2010. In a speech to the SEIU membership as a candidate for President, Obama revealed the closeness of his relationship admitting “your agenda is my agenda,” adding that he consults with SEIU on immigration issues and pledged the passage of “comprehensive immigration reform” to a resounding cheer from the crowd. Terry Goddard has announced that he supports President Obama’s immigration reform plan and refuses to reject the endorsement of the SEIU or UFCW despite their boycott of the state. The truth behind the boycott and the support of the SEIU from Obama and Goddard is revealed in what “reform” really means to them. In June of 2009, former International Executive Vice President and current International Secretary-Treasurer, Eliseo Medina, laid out the SEIU’s view of comprehensive immigration reform as a way to generate eight million “progressive” voters to support their efforts.
