A forum was held in San Francisco to report on the 2012 SEIU international convention in Denver, Colorado. Delegates reported that the new Mary Kay Henry "team" manipulated the convention and wasted more than $13 million in avoiding the real issues facing the SEIU and public workers in the United States. The main push was for partnerships with the bosses and billionaires and pushing Obama and other Democratic and even Republican politicians.
