My Congressman is a Shill for Big Oil & Gas

This is a letter I send to my representative, Tim Murphy (R-PA 18). "As far as the Keystone Pipeline is concerned, I saw you standing up there yesterday with Boehner who lied about the amount of jobs it would produce, and how the states it would run through wanted it. Why did he lie? Because he is heavily invested in 7 of the companies involved in it. In the old days, politicians would be dipped in the tar sands, feathered and run out of town for being such insider trading shills. Are you invested in oil and gas like your speaker? I don't know, but I do know what you’ve gotten from the oil and gas companies just in 9 months in 2010.

You get thousands of dollars from them practically every single day! No wonder you have a 0% rating from the LCV, indicating anti-environment votes. Isn’t it time to get the money out of politics, so you can start working for the people again, instead of special interests?"
