Earlier this week, we posted about how Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky was singlehandedly responsible for several million Americans possibly losing their unemployment insurance. Bunning was the lone member of the Senate holding up an extension of unemployment benefits.
Now, because of his actions, a group representing unemployed Americans wants Bunning kicked out of baseball’s Hall of Fame. Saying Bunning is “mean” and “despicable” the group UCubed (Ur Union of Unemployed) has even started a petition demanding Bunning’s plaque be removed from Cooperstown. U3 says it will present the signed petition to Bunning’s Senate office and the Baseball Writers Association of America (whose members vote on the Hall of Fame.)
