On October 20, just weeks before the election, Sen. Barack Obama sent six letters to John Gage (National President, American Federation of Government Employees, AFL-CIO.) These letters address concerns, apparently raised by Mr. Gage with then Candidate Obama. We have not seen Mr. Gage's letters, but Mr. Obama's stand alone. They address issues in six agencies: the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, Environmental Protection Agency, Housing and Urban Development, Social Security Administration, Transportation Security Administration and the Labor Department.
