Woman dragged out of hearing for exposing Big Energy donations W.VA.

Recommended Posts

It looks like this country needs to go back to a policy where lawmakers CANNOT receive in any way shape or form anything of a monetary value, i.e., vacations, donations, etc., from anyone while in office!  Additionally, all political candidates should only be allowed to spend a set amount of money on any campaign and each candidate gets the exact amount to make it fair!

Just to begin with............

Like illegal drugs, take the money out of it and all the criminals will get out.

A candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates was dragged out of a hearing after listing the donations received by state lawmakers from fossil fuel companies. She was testifying on a bill on oil and gas drilling rules.

Lissa Lucas was criticizing a proposed bill, HB 4268, which would allow oil and gas companies to drill on private land with the consent of just 75 percent of the landowners. Energy companies are currently required to have 100 percent approval from landowners before they can extract gas and minerals from land.

Wow, they only get 1:45 to talk. These corrupt people always do this kind of thing. Those are campaign donations and are not "personal comments". They sure didn't want that coming out. Brave woman!

So she points out they're paid off, and they wont let her.  Shocker.

 

The corruption of the USA is total.  You cannot trust anyone who is in office now.

If her facts are provable then someone (like - The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ)) should take this further.  It is absolutely in the interest of the public to know who influences these "law" makers.
