AEA Suspends Carbon Tax Accountability Ads

WASHINGTON – Following a chemical spill in West Virginia’s Elk River, the American Energy Alliance has decided to temporarily suspend a $350K accountability initiative targeting Congressman Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) for his past support of a carbon tax. AEA President Thomas Pyle released the following statement:

“Given the more pressing concern facing West Virginians as a result of the recent chemical spill in the Elk River, the American Energy Alliance is pulling our three week initiative to promote accountability for Rep. Nick Rahall over his vote to support a carbon tax. While we remain staunchly opposed to a carbon tax and committed to holding public officials accountable for the actions, now is not the time for this advertisement. Our efforts in the next several weeks in West Virginia are more rightly directed at helping the families in the affected region.”

The American Energy Alliance is encouraging its nationwide activist network to contribute to charitable organizations, like the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, who are on the ground in West Virginia helping to distribute water and other essential supplies to those affected by the chemical spill.
