UPDATE: Big surprise, coal is linked to this. We have copies of these forged letters and they say "Virginia gets 56% of its energy from coal."
More to come!
Oh for shame, lobbyists. An investigation has found that a lobbying firm forged letters from the NAACP and a Hispanic community organization in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying that the organizations opposed the American Clean Energy and Security Act. The forged letters went to Congressman Tom Perriello (D-VA 5th) and as expected, the community groups are incensed (as are the rest of us).
Neither of the groups oppose the bill.
The guilty lobbying firm is Bonner & Associates, who is calling it a "mistake." Um, yeah. To say the least. We're all waiting to find out who paid the firm to do this.
If it's getting to the point where our opposition is forging letters opposing clean energy - what's next?
