How nasty can union violence get and still be legal? That question has assumed new importance, ever since Teamsters president James Hoffa told President Obama earlier this month that Hoffa’s members stand ready to serve as Obama’s “army,” that labor “likes a good fight,” and that union members will “take these sons of bitches out” — the sons in question being the Tea Party and the GOP, according to Hoffa.

Now a labor racketeering case against one of the biggest building trade unions in New York promises to clarify just how far union violence can go without becoming illegal — if not at the polling place, at least on the work site.
