Lame Excuses: Repetition ignored

August 16th, 2009 · No Comments

The saga of Bonner & Associates / Hawthorn Group / American Coalition for a Clean-Coal Electricity and the sending of fraudulent letters to Congress opposing the American Clean Energy & Security (ACES) Act continues with documents submitted by these organizations to The U.S. House of Representatives’ Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, whose chairman (Congressman Ed Markey) launched an investigation after learning of this fraud.

Now, the Lynchburg News Advance has a reasonable piece on this: Groups accused of sending forged letters to Perriello respond to Congress. Reasonable, that is, with one glaring exception: the 959 word article gives not indication of the simple truth that the involved groups have histories of engaging is similar questionable behavior and of using, essentially exactly the same lame excuses as they peddling to the media — evidently with success since this long article doesn’t mention this record.
