Krewe of Landrieu: Keeping Tabs on What Mary's Friends are Doing
Mary Landrieu – President Obama’s ‘indispensible’ chair of the Senate Energy Committee – keeps interesting company for someone supposedly committed to pro-energy policy. Among the hundreds of thousands of dollars her JAZZ PAC has given to liberal Senators, $25,000 went to Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).
Yesterday, “pro-energy” Mary’s friends Boxer and Whitehouse orchestrated an anti-carbon global warming rally and issued this statement:
“We must stop attacking the President Obama's Climate Action Plan, which is critical. Third, let us put a price on carbon, because carbon pollution costs lives and leads to higher ozone levels.”
A reminder – earlier this year, it was the Whitehouse who said Landrieu’s new committee chairmanship would put the energy industry in a “very dangerous position” and that there would be payback for not going along with Democrats’ anti-energy agenda.
