Lachelt, a Democrat who is running for reelection this year, listed Earthworks as her employerwhile reporting a September 2015 donation to her own campaign. It was puzzling, because Lachelt supposedly quit her career in activism to become a county commissioner. Could she really have been working as an environmental activist, as well as a public official, all this time?
It is truly unfortunate that politicians, special interest groups and the media control the narrative on fracking, even though it’s been used for decades.
Liebman directed his students to stand in front of the pro-energy citizens and block them by holding up their “ban fracking” signs, which they did. He then took out a camera and snapped a number of photographs of them doing so.
