The more that the National Labor Relations Board resists releasing documents related to its ridiculous case against Boeing Co., the more it seems the NLRB has something to hide -- from both Congress and, now, from the public.

Because the NLRB hasn't complied with a July 14 Freedom of Information Act request, Judicial Watch is now suing in federal court to obtain those documents.

Meanwhile, the NLRB also is resisting subpoenas for the same sort of documents that U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., issued in his role as House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman.

Both Judicial Watch and Rep. Issa believe the NLRB's case against Boeing is politically motivated. With the NLRB dominated by Democrat Obama appointees doing Big Labor's bidding by painting Boeing's new factory in right-to-work South Carolina as retaliation for past strikes at its unionized Washington state facilities, it's all too likely that the NLRB's withholding documents that would confirm their suspicions.

Given that all U.S. businesses' freedom to locate where they wish is at stake, the more pressure brought to bear on the NLRB and its case against Boeing -- an outrageous misuse of power for Big Labor's benefit -- the better.
