PA’s Worse: Dem Gives Pitiful Excuse for Fracking Deregulation Vote

In this edition of Counterpoint PA’s homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week, the bronze goes to Democratic state Senator Vincent Hughes for voting to pass a bill out of committee that would give the fracking industry the same liability immunities for using abandoned mine drainage (pretty nasty stuff) to frack that volunteers get for trying to clean it up and giving an embarrassingly bad reason for doing so. In my commentary, I address my issues with his excuse both on the merits and in terms of his capacity to get campaign donations from the fracking industry.
