Tyrone Freeman banned for life by SEIU

SEIU President Andy Stern announced today that Tyrone Freeman, the politically connected head of the union's United Long-Term Care Workers local, would be banned for life and asked to repay more than $1 million misappropriated from union funds. Stern took the actions based on an internal probe. Freeman's lawyer had no immediate comment. Freeman semi-voluntarily stepped aside in August after a series of L.A. Times stories busted him for misusing union funds and directing money to his wife's ventures.
