United Steelworkers snaps up ‘Mr. 47 Percent’ Scott Prouty


That didn’t take long. Scott Prouty, the bartender who secretly shot the video of Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” comments at a fundraising dinner, has found a new gig with the United Steelworkers union. Ed Schultz, who devoted his entire show to Prouty last night, asked about his future plans. Law school, he thought.

What’s Prouty going to do for the United Steelworkers? According to the Huffington Post, that’s “yet to be determined.”

Steelworkers President Leo Gerard told HuffPo, “He’s going to come work for us. We’re going to sit down and talk. He has lots of skills, and we’ll try to put him in a place where he can use the skills he’s got.”

If Ed Schultz’s new weekend gig on MSNBC doesn’t pan out, maybe Prouty can find him an office at USW in a few months.
