The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation has been giving money to groups critical of labor unions for more than a decade — long before Gov. Scott Walker began his efforts to curb the power of labor groups in Wisconsin.

But internal records hacked from the Bradley Foundation server show that a couple of major grant recipients have listed as a goal to "defund" labor organizations, something one expert says could be problematic for the Bradley Foundation.

Marcus Owens, who ran the Internal Revenue Service's tax-exempt organizations division in the 1990s, said union-busting doesn't count as a charitable purpose.
