From the Allen campaign:
Since Mainers re-elected Susan Collins on a promise to protect our air, water and scenic resources, Collins has instead voted against the environment and with the Bush Administration often enough to make us wonder whether her promise to show up for every vote is a promise or a threat.
After being dinged by the group for voting TWICE for the Bush Administration’s coastal drilling plan, [S. 3711, Vote #218, 7/31/06; S. 3711, Vote #219, 8/1/06; CQ, 8/1/06], three years after voting for the Bush-Cheney Energy Bill, [HR 6, Vote #213, 7/29/05] and four years after voting to slash funding to track down and prosecute polluters, [Senate roll call vote 58, 3/12/2004], the only people endorsing Collins should be the oil companies. [SCR 23, Vote #97, 3/25/03]
And in a way, the oil companies have, contributing more than $140,000 to Collins’ campaign.
