California prison guards union launches recall of Schwarzenegger

The politically powerful California Correctional Peace Officers Association has worked without a contract since 2006 and just had their pay cut to minimum wage because of the budget crisis, wants to recall Gov. Schwarzenegger.

Before you get all misty-eyed about union solidarity, be aware that the CCPOA tends to be quite right wing, solely concerned with themselves, and a huge contributor of money to politicians. Arnold came into power in a recall in 2003. And it was also over a budget crisis.

What goes around, comes around.
