Labor day: In the continued fight for labor union endorsements in the Democratic primary, mayoral candidate and Metro Councilman Jim King, D-10, received a nod from the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local 147, which brings him up to three labor union endorsements thus. The campaign touts Councilman King’s 10 commitments to workers while boasting that he has a “100% pro-labor record,” as a city lawmaker. However, King still trails Democratic front-runner Greg Fischer, who leads the pack with seven union endorsements, but it is expected that King will announce another labor endorsement later this week, according to a source in the campaign.

Don’t be Shy-loh: The bookkeeper for Shiloh Baptist Church pleaded guilty to several counts of fraud against the federal housing department in a case where $1.2 million in federal tax dollars was supposed to redevelop an old school into a senior living center. The money is gone and all that is left is a boarded up eye sore in the Parkland neighborhood. It is likely the bookkeeper will be called to testify against church pastor Rev. Henry M. Humphrey, who was also indicted and scheduled to go to trial March 23.
