The Washington Times reports the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees national executive board has angered some state affiliates which have thrown their support behind Barack Obama.
The executive director of one Oregon branch says national President Gerald McEntee ignored his requests not to campaign for Clinton ahead of Tuesday's primary.
Ken Allen says, "McEntee's actions are disrespectful to our Oregon leaders, members and a waste of money. Given the status of the race at this time his efforts are probably meaningless."
But McEntee is standing by his decision, citing the national board's 23-to-10 vote to endorse Senator Clinton.
