When I first saw this story in Sunday’s Advocate, I was quite surprised. So surprised in fact, that I had to do a double take. I had to check the facts, because actions speak louder than words…
Fact: Don Cazayoux voted to block an amendment aimed at opening up drilling in ANWR (Roll call 341)
Fact: Don Cazayoux voted to block consideration of a bill that would establish new refineries, allow energy exploration in ANWR as well as the Outer Continental Shelf, and to create a tax credit for nuclear energy (Roll call 391)
Fact: Don Cazayoux has, thus far, refused to sign a discharge petition that could force an up or down vote on an ANWR drilling proposal.
Fact: Don Cazayoux has voted six more times with Democrat leadership to block proposed solutions to our energy crisis. (HRC 338, 340, 370, 380, 405, 423)
How is it that this lowly website can get it right and the expert reporters down at the Advocate miss such hypocrisy? One has to wonder, does the Advocate actually care about reporting or are they more interested in doing “Conservative” puff pieces for Don Cazayoux?
