Enviro Group Chides Collins

It's hard to get a sense--at least quickly--of how strong a grassroots presence Friends of the Earth Action has in Maine. But their endorsement of Rep. Allen is notable for its language about Sen. Collins:

"Maine residents deserve an A voter in the Senate, not someone who scores a C- through her career but then gets green the year before an election," said Dr. Brent Blackwelder, President of Friends of the Earth Action.
"The future of the Supreme Court is one of the most crucial issues for those of us focused on clean air, clean water and the climate crisis," said Friends of the Earth Action board member and Maine resident Michael Herz. "Unfortunately Susan Collins voted to confirm both of George Bush's right-wing Supreme Court nominees, jeopardizing numerous environmental protections."
