    Construction union facing bribery trial backs Hillary - BY BARBARA ROSS and MICHAEL McAULIFF, New York Post
    Meet Hillary Clinton's latest backers: New York's carpenters union, whose boss, Michael Forde, faces a bribery trial next month in a mob-linked corruption scandal.

    Forde, the head of one of the most powerful construction unions in the state, threw his 25,000-member New York District Council of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners behind Clinton's White House run Thursday.

    The eyebrow-raising, closed-door endorsement broke ranks with the national union.
    "Hillary is a friend of the carpenters - always has been," said a union member leaving the endorsement.

    "She's a friend of labor," said another. The national carpenters union has backed John Edwards.
