LifeZette cited CEI’s report by Senior Fellow Christopher Horner, “Government for Rent.”
Christopher Horner, a CEI fellow who wrote a report released Tuesday, titled “Government for Rent,” contrasted that environmental group-supplied cash with progressive complaints leveled against corporate spending.
He noted that Democratic Party donor Wendy Abrams expressed to then-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman her consternation that ExxonMobil had spent $31 million fighting climate change activism over two decades.
“These people are spending $10 million on a political event over the course of the next two days … This should add some perspective to that,” he told LifeZette.
The 44-page report follows a paper Horner wrote for the Washington think tank last month, pointing to the cozy relationship between liberal attorneys general and wealthy environmental activists.
