Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 11, 2018

The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations. The resolution introduced by DNC Chair Tom Perez states that the party "support[s] fossil fuel workers" and will accept donations from "employers' political action committees." It was approved by a 30-2 vote just two months after the committee adopted another resolution prohibiting donations from fossil fuel companies by a unanimous vote. The new resolution nods to "forward-looking employers" that are "powering America's all-of-the-above energy economy and moving us towards a future fueled by clean and low-emissions energy technology, from renewables to carbon capture and storage to advanced nuclear technology."

Weapons grade hypocrisy, as usual. They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.

They never should have passed the ban in the first place.

Now they are forced to backtrack and use terms like "forward thinking employers". They look like hypocrites.

The Dems can't afford to turn away contributors in this sector. It's too big.

I don't see why they'd ever ban it in the first place. BP loved Obama even after they had their little boo-boo in the Gulf of Mexico.

They'll never learn what Laura? How much you love inhaling the fumes of diesel?

And yes it was stupid to propose a ban on contributions. What's to be gained by by putting yourself behind the curve.

You play the game as it is, not as you'd like it to be.

Just wait a few minutes until they tell you, with a straight face, that just because they give money does not mean they will have influence.
