"The AFL-CIO wants to build the Keystone Pipeline because it would provide jobs for union members," as James Conner writes for The Flathead Memo, a liberal blog out of Montana's Flathead Valley.

Conner got a hold of an email sent from the Montana AFL-CIO political director to other labor union leaders in the state, apparently. Check out the full email at Conner's Flathead Memo by clicking here. Here's an excerpt:
