If you care about the environment and are clever, you can help defeat Richard Pombo, head of the Natural Resources Comm in the House, rancher extraordinaire, who single-handedly tried to dismantle the Endangered Species Act, among his other misdeeds.
Help design a billboard exposing Richard Pombo’s Enemy-of-the-Earth crusade. We’ll be purchasing a billboard in his district advertising this website, and we want you to design it. All entries will be judged by Political Strategist James Carville and Laurie David, the Founder of Stop Global Warming.org. The winner will be announced with the unveiling of the billboard in an email from Carville and David to over one million DCCC supporters before it goes up in Pombo’s district.
… A short, punchy message is the most important part — the most effective billboards usually have less than 15 words on them.
Rep. Richard Pombo, chairman of the House Resources Committee, has been a poor steward of our environment. As chairman, Pombo has pushed for selling off our national parks, dismantling the Endangered Species Act, and drilling in the Alaskan refuge. Instead of fighting to protect the public’s resources, Pombo has fought to protect his family’s financial resources.
Congressman Richard Pombo exemplifies the Republican Culture of Corruption in the House of Representatives. He uses his position of power to benefit his family, engages in pay to play politics with energy companies and Indian tribes with ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, and is a close ally of indicted former GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
