Clinton Surprised To Hear Major Campaign Donors Are Fossil Fuel Lobbyists

- October 11, 2015

Clinton Recently Claimed She Wasn't Aware She's Taken Funds From The Industry And Said She'll "Check On That." VOTER: "Senator Sanders and Governor O'Malley have both committed to not take money from the fossil fuel industry. I'd like to know if you'd be willing to sign a pledge that you will not take money from the fossil fuel industry, and that you'll stop immediately." CLINTON: "While I don't know that I ever have, I'm not exactly one of their favorites." VOTER: "You have." CLINTON: "Have I? Well ok, I'll check on that. They certainly haven't made much of an impression on me if I don't even know it." (Hillary Clinton, Remarks At A Campaign Event, Iowa City, IA, 12/16/15)

Lobbyists That Represent Drug And Oil Companies Are Raising "Stacks Of Money" For Clinton's Campaign. "Hillary Clinton took aim this week at the pharmaceutical industry and the Keystone oil pipeline. But that doesn't mean the Democratic presidential front-runner isn't enjoying the support of lobbyists representing drug and oil companies in Washington, many of whom are helping raise stacks of money for her campaign." (Catherine Ho, "Clinton Takes Aim At Pharma, Keystone - But Industry Lobbyists Still Provide Campaign Cash," The Washington Post's Power Post , 9/24/15)

  • Fossil Fuel Lobbyists Have Raised Over $120,000 For Clinton This Presidential Cycle. "An analysis by the Huffington Post concluded that nearly all of Clinton's top bundlers have ties with the fossil fuel industry. They include the likes of ExxonMobil executive Theresa Mary Fariello, who raised $21,200 for the Clinton campaign and Gordon Giffin, a former lobbyist for TransCanada, the company who tried to build Keystone XL, who has raised more than $100,000."
