SHOT/CHASER: Congresswoman Who Sponsored Measure to Slash LWCF in Colorado Campaigning for Gardner
REMINDER: This is one of Gardner’s multiple attempts to cut land and water conservation funding
SHOT: In 2011, then-Rep. Cory Gardner voted for a measure to slash the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) by 90 percent sponsored by Wyoming Rep. Cynthia Lummis. This was one of Gardner’s multiple attempts to slash funding for the conservation program.
CHASER: Despite Gardner’s desperate attempt to greenwash his abysmal environmental record by campaigning on the Great American Outdoors Act, Gardner is doing himself no favors by bringing anti-conservation Lummis to Colorado to try to lift his flailing campaign.
Facing an uphill election, Gardner is desperately trying to paper over his anti-conservation, Big Polluter agenda that earned him a failing 11% lifetime score from the League of Conservation Voters and a spot on their notorious “Dirty Dozen” list. Gardner’s greenwashing wasn’t fooling anyone, but bringing his anti-conservation pal to Colorado isn’t helping.
