Another Union Boss Charged With Having Sticky Fingers

Sid Mannetti, former president of AFGE Local 1170 stole about $50,000, according to the Feds.

Federal prosecutors have charged a former Seattle union official with one count of embezzlement.

They say Sid Mannetti took more than $50,000 while he was president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 1170 from 2006 to 2008. The union represents about 140 workers at Pacific Medical Centers in the Seattle area.

Charging papers filed in U.S. District Court on Monday say he used the union's credit card and bank account to pay for personal expenses.

Neither the local nor Mannetti's attorney, Dennis Carroll, immediately returned calls seeking comment.
