Group pledges to “stop the efforts of Trump and his nominees”
Earlier today, Mo Brooks released an op-ed claiming to be a “proven conservative” despite being a card-carrying member of the Sierra Club. The liberal group has conducted a longtime war against oil and gas development—a position that Brooks has supported through his dues—putting hundreds if not thousands of Alabama jobs on the chopping-block.
The Sierra Club now has a fundraising solicitation on its website about “launching a campaign to stop the efforts of Trump and his nominees to derail everything we’ve achieved” under the Obama Administration. Last cycle, Sierra Club gave $348,512 to Democrats and just $1,000 to Republicans.
“Career Congressman Mo Brooks may be perfectly comfortable with Sierra Club’s promotion of Al Gore’s liberal environmental agenda, but his membership dues have put Alabama oil and gas jobs at risk. If Mo Brooks is a ‘proven conservative’ like he claims, he can ‘prove’ it by quitting the Sierra Club and apologizing to Alabama voters for validating their liberal agenda.” –SLF Spokesman Chris Pack
