SEIU Local 1: It Took Years and Federal Scrutiny for Mendoza to Return Campaign Contribution from Notorious Alleged Mob Associate

CHICAGO – The following is a statement from SEIU Local 1 spokesman Nick Desideri in response to reports Susana Mendoza intends to return a campaign contribution from alleged mob associate and anti-worker United Maintenance head Richard Simon.Both Bill Daley and Gery Chico returned donations from Simon in 2013 and 2010 respectively:

“It speaks volumes about Susana Mendoza that she only returned alleged mob associate Richard Simon’s 2016 donation amid her mayoral run and serious federal scrutiny of her mentor Ed Burke.

“What is Mendoza’s relationship to Simon and Burke that it took her years and the pressure of a federal investigation to return this troubling donation from an alleged mob associate?”
