Kansas City AFL-CIO President Pat ‘ Duke’ Dujakovich used some blunt language to day to blast Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Thursday night fundraiser in Kansas City.
“I’m amazed Romney has the balls to show his face in Kansas City”, Dujakovich told reporters Thursday.
Dujakovich and a former steelworker criticized Bain Capital, a company where Romney was a leading executive.

About 75% of it’s operations moved forward after Bain came in. Developing.
