High on Frack: Congress Members Bankrolled by the Fracking Industry

High on Frack: Congress Members Bankrolled by the F Industry is increasing dramatically, a new report finds, reports Molley Redden at Mother Jones.  As the fracking industry has grown dramatically in the past decade, so, too, have the donations to record levels, especially  to Republicans, not surprisingly, situated in fracking districts. It wouldn’t surprise me that the fracking pollution occurring there will cost far more for taxpayers to clean up, eventually, because that has been the historical track of the fossil fuel industry in general — just go ask the good people living along the gulf coast in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. fracking payroll of congressmen,  Courtesy Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington   Congresspeople supported by the fracking industry.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
