Food & Water Watch Uses Fracking Fear for Fundraising
Rabid anti-drilling group Food & Water Watch (F&WW), based in Washington, D.C., needs money. How do we know? Because they’re circulating a petition to the rich, liberal residents of Johnston and Cranston, Rhode Island, telling them they need to support a statewide ban on fracking. Wait, Rhode Island? Yeah, Rhode Island—where there is no shale to frack! So why circulate a petition there? You’ve got it—it’s a sleazy tactic to get names and addresses for F&WW fundraising campaigns.
