McCAIN SKIPPED ALL 15 KEY ENVIRONMENTAL VOTES
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Two weeks ago John McCain was the only Senator to duck a crucial vote on the future of clean energy in America - dooming to failure the measure that would have helped make renewable energy more affordable and accessible. Now it turns out this missed vote is part of a pattern.
Last week, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the 2007 National Environmental Scorecard giving Senator McCain a score of ZERO. According to the scorecard, McCain was the only member of Congress to skip all 15 crucial environmental votes scored by LCV.
