National Labor Relations Board staff members joked about how they “screwed up” the economy and ridiculed Sen. Jim DeMint as “Sen. Dement” in internal emails, according to Judicial Watch.

The public interest group obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information request regarding the NLRB’s lawsuit against the Boeing Co. for opening a $750 million non-union assembly plant in South Carolina to manufacture its Dreamliner plane.

According to Judicial Watch:

In an April 22 email, acting NLRB General Counsel Lafe Solomon wrote to the organization’s outgoing chairwoman, Wilma Liebman: “The article gave me a new idea. You go to geneva [Switzerland] and I get a job with airbus [French company]. We screwed up the us economy and now we can tackle europe.”

Judicial Watch said Solomon’s comment was about an article published in French on the European Planet Labor website saying that South Carolina’s economy would suffer if plans for the plant were dropped.

An email sent to NLRB attorney Debra Willen, also on April 22, mocked DeMint, the Republican South Carolina senator, as “Sen. Dement.”

On May 12, NLRB Deputy Assistant General Counsel Joseph Baniszewski emailed a political cartoon mocking South Carolina over the Boeing plant to Assistant General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo.
