Below is a statement issued by Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson in reference to the FBI investigation of Andy Stern:
"Until such time that Andy Stern is cleared of all wrongdoing by the FBI, the Obama Administration must dismiss him from the national debt commission, and stop meeting with him. No other person has met with the White House as much as Andy Stern, and now we learn he's at the heart of an FBI probe.
"Obama must avoid even the appearance of impropriety and immediately distance himself from Stern. Stern has no business sitting on a presidential commission while the FBI is investigating him, or meeting with top White House officials, including Obama.
"If the White House will not fire Stern, then members of Congress must urge Obama to do so. Congress has a vested interest in the findings of the debt commission not being tainted by a union corruption scandal, and assuring that White House appointments are properly vetted."
