Reject Ignoramuses & Industry Shills for the EPA

(Ignoramus is the title of a farce by George Ruggle (1575-1622) that was first produced in 1615. The title character, whose name in Latin literally means “we do not know,” is a lawyer who fancies himself to be quite shrewd but is actually foolish and ignorant.)

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to urge Sen. [___] vote NO on the latest unqualified nominees for important positions involving environmental policy, including Kathleen Hartnett-White, Andrew Wheeler, William Wehrum, Michael Dourson and Barry Myers.

More script if you want it: These nominees cannot be trusted to protect public health and the environment. Additionally they will not commit to uphold California’s Green House Gas Waiver.

OMG! – “NO!” on Allison Eid for Tenth Circuit Court. She’s on the calendar for Wednesday, so call today!

Our newest Supreme Court justice and dark-money darling, Neil Gorsuch, a fellow Coloradan, favors this judicial nominee. Is it something in the water?

Script: I’m calling to ask Sen. [___] to vote NO on the confirmation of Allison Eid of the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

Additional script if you want: She is a hard-right jurist who has worked to undermine campaign finance laws, funding for public schools, collective bargaining rights for teacher and unions trying to engage in the democratic process. Eid supported corporations’ long-term efforts to make it more difficult for consumers to hold businesses accountable would have allowed a private company to use eminent domain to build a petroleum pipeline. She celebrated cases striking down the ban on guns in school zones and invalidating parts of the Violence Against Women Act. If corporations were ACTUALLY people, she’d be great, but she not an appropriate choice for the rest of us.
