A new site, Dirty Deputies provides a database that shows close to one third of the Trump administration’s energy and environment appointees have ties to the fossil fuel industry or the Koch Brothers. According to the Center for American Progress Action Fund, the tracker will help increase transparency of the political appointees who are “pulling the strings on Trump’s dirty energy agenda.”
Citizens are invited to submit additional information through a link on the site about political staff, including names of additional staff, their previous affiliations, and any connections they have to the fossil fuel industry. All tips are vetted by the Center for American’ Progress Action Fund researchers before posting. Check out Dirty Deputies HERE.
