The same environmental groups that launched last weeka web site targeting lawmakers who have taken money from the oil, natural gas and coal industries are at it again.
This time, they are launching a web site called CleanUptheSenate.com. Oddly, the site redirects you to BobbingInPetroleum.com and includes a game that allows players to throw tarballs, wind power or a “sun blast” at former BP CEO Tony Hayward. The goal is to “save the senators” from corporate influence. It’s a bit bizarre to say the least.
The site, which says it is “calling out our oil splattered senators,” identifies 46 senators — mostly Republicans, but some Democrats, like Sen. Mary Landrieu (La.) — who the environmentalists say have been influenced by the oil industry.
Groups involved in the campaign include: True Majority, 350.org, MoveOn, Public Citizen, and Greenpeace.
