The "Real Price" behind an Union Label in CD 9

The "Real (Walmart) Price" of the LA County Federation of Labor Candidate in the CD 9 City Council Campaign. 
 State Senator and CD 9 City Council Candidate Curren Price.
Apparently Ana Cubas is not the only candidate to benefit from WalMart's political largess, in the CD 9 City Council Campaign (** Notice that Senator Price and the "Shady Buzz Dot", share the same eye brow DNA). 

Attention CD 9 Union Voters!
Just in time for your Election Day consideration, we bring you this bloggin elaboration on an earlier Mayor Sam missive behind the "true (Senator) Price" of the CD 9 Labor Candidate's connection to WalMart.
We realize that past campaign contributions from WalMart to Senator Price have been documented. But the question here, especially for the LA County Labor Fed endorsed candidate to replace Jan Perry, is whether Senator Price respected his union brothers and sisters supporters, by returning WalMart money.
According to a source.

Public records show that he has accepted nearly $10k from Walmart with no record of having returned any. There’s no plausible deniability here because he was his own treasurer in 2012, having taken money in June. This was right after the mayoral candidates pledged to not take Walmart money.
Here are the Wal-Mart contributions from 2010-2012, totaling $7,400. As noted in the attachment, Curren Price was his own treasurer in 2012.
  1. $1,500 - 5/10/2010 (See Price 460 Mar to May 2010 Attachment)
  2. $3,000.00 - 6/30/2011 (See Price Jan to May 2011 Attachment)
  3. $2,000 -  6/7/12  (See 460 Price 2012 Attachment)
  4. $900 -  6/7/12 (See 460 Price 2012 Attachment)

 We provide the pertinent 460 Forms below for review.

Being a fan of the Free Market, this blogger finds nothing wrong in taking money from WalMart. They provide quality merchiindise at low prices, which benefits the finite budgets of working class families. That said, what does it say for the integrity of the LA County Federation of Labor when their anoited choice to replace pro-business City Councilwoman Jan Perry, cannot stand by the litmus test that defines labor friendly candidates?
After all, what would happen to a republican in California who spoke out against Prop 13? Thus, the union bug of support for "WalMart Price", is tainted to say the lease.
If Price is not true to the union label, then how can he be true to the working class community of CD 9?

His last filings show he returned the contributions...so he didn't return them DURING the filing period he got them. He returned them AFTER you posted the first story!!

I wonder if Curren Walmart Price will say anything about the anti-Walmart bill he didn't bother to vote on...at least Mike Davis did, tho he's been stiffed by the Big Bosses.
