So I have a question for the cognoscenti here at Daily Kos? How exactly does a union do political donations. Obviously they can't directly donate to candidates, but does anyone know what the laws involving donations to PAC's, etc. are? I ask because I'm moving into a leadership position in my union, and I think we ought to support the Democratic candidates for governor and our state legislature, but I am having a tough time finding information on this front. If anyone here could point me in the right direction, please let me know!
