United Steelworkers snaps up ‘Mr. 47 Percent’ Scott Prouty

That didn’t take long. Scott Prouty, the bartender who secretly shot the video of Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” comments at a fundraising dinner, has found a new gig with the United Steelworkers union. Ed Schultz, who devoted his entire show to Prouty last night, asked about his future plans. Law school, he thought.

What’s Prouty going to do for the United Steelworkers? According to the Huffington Post, that’s “yet to be determined.”

Steelworkers President Leo Gerard told HuffPo, “He’s going to come work for us. 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.”

If Ed Schultz’s new weekend gig on MSNBC doesn’t pan out, maybe Prouty can find him an office at USW in a few months.

    Why was Obama hugging Jimmy Carter’s grandson & thanking him for making that tape?

    OMG…. How……..Predictable. >:^/

    Bet they don’t allow him near any cameras in or near the union headquarters or at union activities.

    Liberals used to blow a gasket, among other things, in the BJ Clinton days if someone was recorded w/o their consent…. Now unions HIRE them….
    Why didn’t the USW cut Joe Soptic a check, too? His lying commercial got them just as much Obama kickback money as Prouty did….

    It’s a shame that the USW can’t get jobs for the dues paying members they have.

    Nothing makes a union man happier than a bartender, including his woman!

    That tape was made in FL where it is illegal to record a person without their consent. IMHO, Prouty’s only view of steel should be the bars that keeps him in his cage.

    A perfect use for your union dues.. to put a bartender on the payroll.

    Classiest man on the planet? A national hero? Good lord I think I may be ill.

    Translation: Prouty’s spent all of his proceeds from selling the video (cocaine & prostitutes), and needs more money (cocaine & prostitutes). What a bottom-feeder.

    So they hired him before they had a job for him? Nothing like capitalizing on “celebrity” (such as it is in the land of progessives).

  • michael s

    Is he related to Fletcher prouty

  • George

    He was so upset that he didn’t know anyone that could afford to attend a dinner that cost 50K, hmmm! Ask your POTUS how much his dinners cost or a night in the white house! Such an ass!
