Yesterday I posted video of the unknown CNA thug who knocked a camera out of the hands of a GOP volunteer, then shoved or hit the volunteer. I said I'd post any info about his identity.
Research is starting to pay off. I don't know his full identity yet but what I have found indicates he is probably a community organizer, not a nurse.
I stumbled on the California Nurses Association Flickr page yesterday and came across this photo from a training event earlier this past spring.
The name on the name tag is Mike.
Mike is our goon, but he might not be a CNA goon.
This photo was taken at the "Nurses Organizing Institute 2010" - which is some kind of training in community organizing. By the name tag and the way he is holding up papers behind a podium it looks like he was a speaker or trainer. (And what is it with Mike and pens?... in the top picture he has a pen clipped to his shirt collar, and in the next picture he has a pen clipped to his name tag.) See a photo of the newly-trained Alinskyites holding up their certificates here.
So this thug might be some kind of field organizer with AFL-CIO or some other national union. Who knows, maybe he is an ACORN graduate.
We're getting close to flushing out this rat so stay tuned. Still would like more details -- if you have tips or more info on this clod, email me.
In case you missed it, here is the video of Mike knocking a camera out of the volunteers hands, then coming back to shove him.
