Hypocrisy preserved

Sen. David Vitter (R-Formaldehyde)

So why is Vitter so sympathetic to the formaldehyde industry? Campaign finance records show that many of Louisiana's big formaldehyde polluters happen to be—you guessed it—Vitter campaign donors. He's received $9,000 from Dow Chemical's PAC, $5,000 from Monsanto's, $5,000 from ExxonMobil's, and $2,500 from the American Forest and Paper Association's. The American Forest and Paper Association is also a member of the Formaldehyde Council, an industry group whose views align with Vitter's (it's lobbied for an NAS review, too).

Nice...the next thing you know he's going to go to bat for Chinese Drywall makers.

Everyone who got sick from a formaldehyde laced FEMA trailer....make sure you write a thank you letter to your senator who is looking out for his...cough...your best interest.
