Pay to Play? Clean Air Watch examines the money and dirty-air politics of Rep. Ed Whitfield

As many of you know, Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY) has declared he will try to delay critical EPA air pollution standards -- standards that could prevent tens of thousands of premature deaths a year,

Interestingly, the polluter-witnesses bolstering Whitfield's attack gave generous campaign contributions right before Whitfield held a hearing to create a public record for his scheme.

Coincidence, or connection?

Clean Air Watch examines publicly available (though little-scrutinized) documents in Pay to Play?
