NYT Circulation Office Raid? Mob-Union Problem

Most of you noted that the circulation offices of the NYT (and other papers) were raided.

Wanna know why?

Investigators in the city raided offices for some of the nation’s largest newspapers Tuesday as part of a corruption probe into a powerful union that has long faced accusations of ties to organized crime, a law enforcement official said. Police officers working with the Manhattan district attorney’s office searched for paperwork related to the Newspaper and Mail Deliverers Union in circulation, production and delivery offices of The New York Times, the New York Post, the Daily News and El Diario, said the official, who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

That's a relief. Here I thought they were just inflating their circulation numbers or something.
