"Dear Senator Kohl,
I am writing as a private citizen to voice my strong opposition to the bill misleadingly labeled as the `Employee Free Choice Act' also known as Card Check.
The coercive leadership of organized labor does not need additional tools to intimidate ordinary men and women who prefer to remain outside the union. I would urge you to speak out against this legislation and expose it for what it is -- a catalyst for union demagoguery.
I am not against organized labor per se, but I am against bullies and thugs gaining ground with sanction from Congress.
John J. Maddente"
