On the heels of the former U.S. Border Patrol union boss caught using union funds to pay for trips to his mistress, Media Trackers picked up a story about Western Wisconsin AFL-CIO boss, Bill Brockmiller, and four other would-be “Johns” who were arrested in a prostitution sting Monday night.
According to Brockmiller’s LinkedIn profile, the AFL-CIO boss is also employed as a labor market analyst for the La Crosse Job Center
All had answered an online ad and showed up between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Brookstone Inn on Rose Street, where they agreed to exchange money for sex, according to police.
Investigators and an undercover officer arrested the men on suspicion of soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor.
Brockmiller, a county supervisor representing the 11th district in the city of La Crosse, said Tuesday, “I very much want to take full responsibility for my actions and express extreme sorrow and disappointment in myself.”
A labor market analyst, Brockmiller is also president of the Western Wisconsin AFL-CIO.
According Media Trackers’ research, Brockmiller is also a player in Wisconsin politics, donating to fellow union-bought Democrats, and was also involved in the recent failed effort to recall Republican Governor Scott Walker.
