In March 2011, Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu disregarded a union strike to cross a noisy picket line and give a speech to a business association that donated to her campaign, The Daily Caller has learned.
While members of the local chapter of the national Unite Here! union were in the middle of a cold, two-month outdoor protest against Madison Hotel’s policies, the senator and her staff drove into the hotel in a black SUV. (RELATED: Republicans Could Win Louisiana Outright… With A Tweak)
“I was standing on the sidewalk as her sedan was driven into the garage-like area of the hotel,” a conference attendee told TheDC. “I saw her look right at the protesters as she drove in. They were so loud and created such a presence that no one in a two block area could have missed them.”
