By Perry Gershon:
Lee Zeldin wants you to think he’s an environmentalist. He’s spending big bucks blasting that absurd idea across Long Island television.
Don’t make me laugh.
In his four years in Congress, Lee has voted against the environment over and over again. He’s taken tens of thousands of dollars from the oil and gas industry to prop up his campaign.
It’s no wonder Lee opposed protecting the environment on 21 out of 22 votes.
Lee opposed seven bills on air quality protections.
He opposed protections for clean water 19 different times.
He opposed protecting wildlife eight times.
And he continues to stand by a president who insists climate change is a Chinese hoax.
Get the idea? Lee Zeldin is no friend of the environment, of clear air and water, or protecting our planet for future generations.
Long Island voters have a clear choice in November.
I promise to work tirelessly to protect the environment – whether that be our clear air, clean water, clean energy production, or protecting wildlife.
Lee’s record is clear, and that’s just another reason why he has to go.
