They insinuate that the Evil Little Troll opposes this sensible piece of legislation because he’s in the pocket of energy concerns.
Political action committees affiliated with Southern Co. and several of its employees are regular contributors to the re-election accounts of both Alabama senators. Collectively they add up to become Sessions’ largest contributor over the past six years, at about $76,000, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. They add up to $62,000 for Shelby, his fourth-highest contributor.
This is completely unjust. True, Sessions is in the pocket of energy concerns. But he would oppose this bill anyway because it’s all sciency and stuff and would solve problems he refuses to believe in.
