The Stain of Big Oil

We think it's important to (once again) remind folks that while Big Oil and other special interests were raking in billions in profits, they turned around and spent tens of millions lobbying Congress to protect those profits and kill clean energy jobs.

But, as we know, these special interests didn’t stop there.

They've also spent millions more doling out political contributions.

That's why today LCV and Montana Conservation Voters launched a series of TV ads targeting Reps. Roy Blunt (MO-07), Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-09) and Denny Rehberg (MT-AL), all of whom voted against the American Clean Energy & Security Act...and in doing so sided with Big Oil over clean energy jobs.

Check out the TV ad from Montana Conservation Voters here.
