IAFF Steadfast on Support for Lieberman
Posted On: Aug 11, 2006
IAFF Continues Support for Senator Lieberman August 10, 2006 - IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger told MSNBC’s “Hardball” August 8 that the union would continue to support Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT) as long as he remains in the Senate race. Lieberman said after his narrow defeat in the August 8 Connecticut primary that he will run as an independent. “Joe Lieberman has earned the support of fire fighters and our International union for his long record of support and leadership in passing laws that help our members do their jobs and protect our homeland and national security,” President Schaitberger told “Hardball” host Chris Matthews. “If Joe Lieberman is running for re-election in November, we’ll be supporting Joe Lieberman,” Schaitberger said from Chicago, where he was attending an AFL-CIO Executive Board meeting. “Regardless of the party label that he carries, he’ll be the same Joe Lieberman tomorrow that he was yesterday and for the last 18 years, and we stand with those who stand with us.” President Schaitberger defended Senator Lieberman in a contentious eight-minute interview that included opponent Ned Lamont supporter Reverand Al Sharpton. Prior to the interview, fire fighters rallied outside the NBC studios in New Haven, Connecticut, where Matthews hosted his show. “Joe Lieberman has been supporting fire fighters since his days in the state senate in 1970,” said Schaitberger. “Joe Lieberman understands what this country needs in order to secure our homeland, protect our neighborhoods and protect our communities.”
