Philadelphia Firefighters and Paramedics Union Break With IAFF Endorse Trump

Biden-connected boss of firefighters union dogged by financial misconduct accusations

The longtime boss of the country’s largest firefighters union is facing heat over a string of serious financial misconduct accusations, making his close ties to Joe Biden a point of contention.

Harold Schaitberger, the powerful president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, has been accused by the union’s treasurer of taking out $1 million from union pension coffers despite still working there.

The Wall Street Journal, meanwhile, reported Thursday that thousands of dollars worth of bar tabs, steak dinners and music downloads are among the personal expenses that Schaitberger allegedly used union funds to cover.
