League of Conservation Voters Targets Buck With Faux-Facebook Page « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
The League of Conservation Voters released a new web videotoday mocking Republican Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck’s statements on climate change. In the video, the environmental group shows a spoof version of Buck’s Facebook page, complete with a video of him saying, “I don’t think man-made cause is a primary factor for global warming.”
On the faux-Facebook page, Buck sets his relationship status as “it’s complicated” with “Big Oil,” writes a message on the Tea Party’s Facebook page and sends a message to Karl Rove, Sarah Palin and “Big Oil” that says, “Miss you guys! Hopefully I’ll be around in 2011! LMAO!! :).”
Buck is in a tight race with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), though polling among likely votersputs Buck ahead. Buck has consistently said he believes climate change is not caused by human activity, earning him the ire of environmentalists. The League of Conservation Voters has spent record amounts of money on the upcoming midterm elections, and Buck has been one of its targets. The group put him on its Dirty Dozen list, which catalogs lawmakers in key races with poor environmental records.
