    The most telling thing about this is how little is being said about the Fiat Chrysler role. Corporate media protecting their own.

    Laptop charging station possibly. Sprinkler system doused the entire building. Weekend fire with no one there. DFD had a hard time getting in.

    The Fiat/Chrysler part of the investigation is pretty much done. IIRC they were the first to be charged last year. Now they are working their way up the UAW food chain.

    Sprinklers no doubt destroyed a lot of paperwork that wasn't burn up. Too bad. There might be been evidence proving this was all a corporate conspiracy.

    Not much business is done on paper anymore. Most paper content is created on computers. Computers are networked and backed up. Those backups are offsite, if the UAW's IT department is doing it's job. An onsite fire should not bring down a modern organization's records.

    Keeping this delegate system to elect nearly all UAW officials was the root cause that allowed the corruption. Even at this late hour, the membership has zero authority to remove these corrupted officials.
