New questions have come to light about yet another member of the Obama team, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.

It's being reported that, while serving in Congress, Solis was actively involved with a group that was lobbying Congress to eliminate the secret ballot in union elections -- and hid that fact from her fellow representatives.  That's even as she cosponsored the legislation her group was pushing for.

Nor was she just a passive member of the (rabidly anti-business) group in question, American Rights at Work.  She was its treasurer.  Nice.

Just more hope and change.
