During the Democratic National Convention, the office of Philadelphia’s most powerful construction union stood out, decked in an enormous sign declaring “Hillary for President.” But on Friday morning, the union headquarters captured public attention for a different reason: a yellow Penske semi-truck parked on the curb outside, packed with dozens of boxes of evidence lugged out of the office by federal agents.
Authorities raided not only the office of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 98 but also the home of its powerful leader, John “Johnny Doc” Dougherty, who is also head of the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council. In addition, law enforcement searched a pub run by Johnny Doc and other union bosses, as well as the offices of a labor-connected Philadelphia city councilman.
The Inquirer reported that the investigation involves agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service, focusing on the “alleged misuse of union funds.”

And in June, Johnny Doc inked a project-labor agreement with the DNC, vowing not to strike or picket; in exchange, Democratic officials used union labor for hundreds of convention-related positions. Johnny Doc posted Facebook photos of himself at the convention site last week and told the Philadelphia Inquirer his union spent more than $80,000 on parties attended by local power brokers.
Whats your thoughts on this guys?
