Mo' Stock Options, Mo' Problems.

So how much did Andy get for signing onto SIGA's board of directors? According to a filing the SIGA made yesterday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Andy got 25,000 shares of stock options. And he'll get another 10,000 stock options during the year. Plus cash. You can see the details here.

And if you want to see some of the growing controversy surrounding Andy's newest gig, check out this HILARIOUS piece on Beyond Chron.

And then there are comments on multiple blogs like this one from a former SEIU staffer in Milwaukee:

"It's actually not surprising, for anyone who's paid close attention to Andy Stern's actions over the past few years. As a former SEIU staffer, I can attest that he's engaged in toxic chemical warfare against his own members throughout the US & Canada, but most notably in California. Andy Stern has bent over backwards to sell out workers & cozy up to corporate America, so it makes no sense he now wants to join corporate boardrooms. I'd look for more of this to come."
