This is your DMV in action. It spent over one billion on a computer system that does not work properly. It registered to vote over 150,000 illegal aliens—and refuses to give the list of DMV rolls to check to see how many more are illegally using their drivers license to register to vote. Then you have this:
“Local 1000 of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) urged legislators to reject an independent audit, which union bosses viewed as “premature.” In 2013, the SEIU’s Yvonne Walker led a rally of 8,000 government union members at the state capitol, explaining, “we’re letting them know that this is our house.” The SEIU represents DMV employees across the state.
Last year, as ABC News reported, “a key data operator at the Department of Motor Vehicles failed to perform her essential duties over a period of nearly four years because she slept at her desk for extended periods of time during work hours.” The employee misused more than 2,200 of work time and cost the state more than $40,000. The employee was not named and by all indications remains on the job.
Meanwhile, this writer recently mailed a check for his annual automobile registration. The DMV took more than three weeks to cash the check and at this writing the registration has yet to arrive. “
Like other agencies of government, the people do not control them—it is the unions. Feel safe?
