Bush loves Big Energy

by Michael Alderete on 4/1/2002

After 11 months of stalling, the Bush administration complied with a court order mere hours before the deadline, and released documents regarding who influenced the formation of the administrations energy policy.

The documents are clearly incomplete, with much substantive information still being withheld; no doubt Judicial Watch, an conservative political watchdog organization, will be back in court to force complete disclosure.

Nevertheless, in a Washington Post article Energy Contacts Revealed the documents makes it clear “Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham met with 36 representatives of business interests and many campaign contributors while developing President Bush’s energy policy, and he held no meetings with conservation or consumer groups.”

What a surprise.
