Keep Covering, deleting and reporting. I will continue to post until a resignation of any and all Union affiliation. Ashamed? Embarrassed? Hold to a higher standard your leaders. This is Tom Kamm, he is AFGE President at Pekin Illinois. He is married for 30 years with 4 kids. He was elected by his peers to represent them on a National and Local Level. However, those that elected him dont know his true character, morals and integrity. He is married and yet while on Union Business engages in Sexual Relationships with other Mens wives. DC, Atlantic city etc. When he should have been conducting Union business in the highest standard he was ruining families, his and others. Telling lies and committing adultery. He made promises to divorce and run away with this mistress and marry them only to go back home and toss them aside when the truth came out almost a year after the affair began. A YEAR of lies, deceit and sneaking around at various Union Business dealing all over the country. Shouldnt a Union President be held to a higher standard? AFGE should expect more. Is this the type of person that you want representing AFGE and you as members? Doesnt AFGE stand with higher moral codes and integrity as a bargaining unit or does the BOP and AFGE not care the types of individuals they elect? Does the UNIT at Pekin not care the type of person they elect and the face of their Local?
