Governor Frackenlooper Confronted

Here is a video of Colorado Governor Frackenlooper, er, Hickenlooper, being confronted by residents in Wells County, Colorado. The background is this: This is one of the counties that has been devastated by recent floods and the governor is making a typical politician’s PR tour to show his concern. Meanwhile, he and the oil and gas industry are suing several municipalities which have imposed bans or moratoriums on fracking. These municipalities, of course, would be better served if they could use their scant resources to help residents recover from the floods rather than defend their rights not to be polluted by fracking. An additional problem is that health care professionals are banned from telling people what toxins they have come in contact with from frack fluid. Company secrets, you know.

Note how in the very end the newscaster steps in to rescue Frackenlooper.
