This chapter focuses on the International Brotherhood of Teamsters's (IBT) 2006 election for general president, the independent review board's (IRB) ongoing disciplinary work during its fourth term (July 2006–July 2011), and the run-up to the 2011 IBT election. It first considers the election campaigns of James P. Hoffa and Tom Leedham and the IBT's Las Vegas convention in June 2006 before moving to a discussion of the presidential debate pitting Tom Keegel and Leedham. It then examines the preballoting election protests and the election results, which saw Hoffa defeat Leedham again. It also looks at the IRB's continued investigations of disciplinary cases and systemic corruption at the IBT, including membership in and association with Cosa Nostra.
