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)
