Last month Dana Pullman, the former President of the Massachusetts State Police union, was arrested by the feds for some pretty serious crimes:
The FBI said its investigation revealed that from at least 2012 and continuing until Pullman’s resignation as union president in September 2018, Pullman, Lynch and others “were involved in a scheme and a conspiracy to defraud the union membership through fraud and deceit, including Pullman’s receipt of illegal bribes and kickbacks from Lynch and the lobbying firm.” The investigation also found that Pullman, Lynch and others were involved in a scheme and a conspiracy to defraud two companies seeking to do business with the state of money and property.
While serving as union president, the FBI said Pullman “frequently embezzled and misused” union funds for his own personal use through a union debit card, frequent union expense reimbursement checks and by circumventing the role of the union’s governing board.
“As president of SPAM, we believe Pullman wielded a union like a criminal enterprise, running it like an old school mob boss to steal tens of thousands of dollars from the union,” said Joseph Bonavolonta, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Boston office.
He allegedly used the union credit card to pay for meals, flowers, travel and gifts for an individual he was having a romantic relationship with, including $4,400 in flowers and gifts and $8,000 in personal meals in the Boston area. Pullman also allegedly spent $468 — including $150 on caviar alone — on a lunch at Marea, a Michelin Star restaurant in New York City, that he falsely claimed was a National Trooper Coalition meeting. Other expenses charged to the union included a $3,000 trip to Miami, including a stay at the Palms Hotel, $2,000 in iTunes charges, $40,000 in expense reimbursement checks and the lease of a 2017 Chevrolet Suburban valued at $75,760.
How old and out of touch with reality do you have to be to spend $2,000 on iTunes? That’s even more unforgivable than the $468 caviar lunch he had with his mistress. Come on bro, you’re a fat union bro from Worcester. We all know you don’t actually like caviar. You could’ve just gotten a steak, but that’s why too blue collar. Instead you went for the caviar to impress the slampig because your fat ass got greedy.
If I were trooper and I found out my union dues were going to this gravy dumpster so he could impress a chick, I’d be furious. If anyone’s gonna spend my money on a mistress it’s gonna be me, or the guy who’s sleeping with my wife. Yet according to this letter that new union boss Mark Lynch sent out to troopers (which was then forwarded to Turtleboy), the union has paid over $900,000 in legal fees for Pullman already, AND 7 of the 12 members of the SPAM executive board agreed to OK that.20190909061825537
The corruption never ends folks. Good for Mark Lynch for taking a stand and calling out the 7 corrupt douchebags who are wasting the union dues of members who have already been dragged through the mud for the last two years because of hacks like Dan Risteen, Richard McKeon, Francis Hughes, and everyone else who kept their job despite being involved in hiring Leigha Genduso and covering up the arrest report for Alli Bibaud.
I don’t know who the 7 are, because the letter was sent from a burner account that doesn’t get return emails, but here’s the list of what appears to be the E-Board.
Just a reminder to the rank and file – Dana Pullman isn’t a real cop. He hasn’t been one in years. He’s a criminal who saw an opportunity to steal your money, and if you vote to give him more of your money then you’re basically his bitch. More importantly voting yes only further convinces the public that the MSP hasn’t been reformed at all, and that it’s still got plenty of bad apples the higher you go up the food chain.
