Stern's union supported disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich and one SEIU official was mentioned in connection with a federal corruption investigation. Stern said he has "no reason to believe anyone did anything wrong."
He also said that while he is sorry about the way Blagojevich's career ended, he is not sorry about past SEIU support for him. He said Blagojevich helped child-care and health-care workers in his state, including allowing child-care workers to get health care, training and work supplies.
