United Steelworkers EPIC FAILS...Hiring Filmaker

Steelworkers gathered at the Local 1190 union hall to reminisce as the building was slated to close Friday at the close of business...VIDEO

"It's a shame," said George Mosholder, of Steubenville. "There's not enough people working down here. Not enough steel jobs available to people."

"They sold this country out a long time ago," said Frank Runfeld.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, came to Pittsburgh today to give a pep talk to a room full of women.

"It is women who will lead us forward," she said in her keynote address this morning at the United Steelworkers International Women's Conference, taking place this week at the Wyndham Grand Downtown.

Scott Prouty, recorder of ‘47 percent’ video: An unlikely political gadfly

Court records show that that Internal Revenue Service in 2006 secured a more than $15,000 federal tax lien against Prouty for unpaid taxes from 2000 and 2002. It was unclear whether Prouty has repaid the money.

The records also show that an insurance company obtained a more than $5,700 default judgment against Prouty and a woman named Susan Dibella in 2009 in Broward County, Fla., court. Attorneys in the case did not return telephone calls, and a telephone number listed for Dibella had been disconnected.

In another bout with the court system, Prouty in 2011 filed a sexual-harassment lawsuit against Gulfstream Park Racing Association, which runs a number of horse-racing casinos in South Florida. According to the lawsuit, Prouty worked at a Gulfstream facility for 31/2 years as a bartender but was passed over for promotions in favor of female employees who were “having sexual relations with management.”

Prouty was fired, and the case was dismissed after mediation, court records said.

WASHINGTON -- Now that he's gone public, Scott Prouty, the man behind the infamous "47 percent" video of Mitt Romney's remarks at a Florida fundraiser, has been in talks to work for the United Steelworkers union in a role that's yet to be determined, the head of the union told HuffPost on Thursday.

Steelworkers President Leo Gerard said the union met Prouty through Charles Kernaghan, a labor rights activist who heads the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, headquartered in Pittsburgh. Prouty had gotten in touch with Kernaghan, who'd been researching Bain Capital and outsourcing as Prouty anonymously disseminated his video last year. Gerard said that union officials met with Prouty at the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C., in January, before the videographer was willing to go public.

Gerard explained his respect for Prouty, paraphrasing a quote from President Barack Obama that one voice can change a room, that room a city, that city a state, and so on. "I think Scott Prouty is one voice that changed the country," Gerard said.

"He's going to come work for us," Gerard went on. "We're going to sit down and talk. He has lots of skills, and we'll try to put him in a place where he can use the skills he's got."
