Dave Camp Scores Perfect Zero on the Environment

Rep. Dave Camp, the Congressional champion of the Dow Chemical Company, has had a perfect record of defending our area's worst polluter and now comes official word on just how bad a Congressman he really has been for the environment.

The League of Conservation Voters, an independent watchdog on environmental issues has just issued its latest National Environmental Scorecard that rates Camp a perfect zero, a distinction that only he earned for his dismal environmental voting record. That's right, no other Michigan member of Congress earned a perfect zero.

Many of our Democratic friends continue to vote for Dave because they "don't think he is THAT bad." Well, my friends, Camp is as bad as it gets.

When it comes to voting for the rich and powerful, Rubber Stamp Camp is always there. When it comes to supporting the Bush administration and Halliburton, you can count on Dave's vote.

But when it comes to clean energy, preserving our natural heritage and saving our planet, Dave Camp votes against it -- not just some of it -- but ALL of it.

Here's a complete rundown of the LCV scores for Michigan's Congressional delegation.

Dave fails on so many issues, it's hard to keep track! No surprise here that he scored a zero, now we need to let everyone know this and give his Democratic challenger, Andrew Concannon the support he needs to send Camp home.

Great blog you've got here!

Cheers,
Julie

Clearly this year will be one of the best chances to de-throne Camp. The GOP is going to take a lot of hits this year and the 4th District needs to be one of them. Concannon needs us to get the word out on these stories as well. Camp is also voting no on the new energies and job creation bill.

Would Love To Contribute From DC,
