You Can Buy Dave, The Price Depends on....

Would you keep quiet and just keep doing what Dow Chemical wants you to do if you knew they were trying to pass the buck for cleaning up their mess along the Tittabawassee River in Midland and Saginaw Counties? Dow could be facing a $100 million cleanup, but it's cheaper to buy a Congressman. It looks like our 4th District Congressman Dave Camp will not only look the other way, but actively support Bush administration efforts to let not only Dow off the hook, but all polluters. You have to hand it to “Dioxin Dave,” he doesn’t come cheap. Dow has coughed up more than $250,000 in campaign contributions since Dow helped put him in office way back in 1990. Want to keep your coal fired power plants from having to spend too much on more pollution controls? DTE and Consumers have also rewarded “Dioxin Dave” too. Check out who has given the largest bucks to keep our anti-environmental Congressman in office.
