Residents of Kentucky’s Third Congressional District are no stranger to Anne Northup. And right now, they’re no stranger to Anne Northup’s campaign ad where she talks about how terrible high gas prices are and how she’s going to do something about it.
So… dun dun dun… the KDP got something right! They just put out a press release calling Northup out for her hypocrisy. Because, to put it simply, the woman owns between $500,002 and $1,050,000 in big oil stock according to her latest financial disclosure. Companies like Andarko Petroleum, Devon Energy, Exxon, Chevron, Royal Dutch and Schlumberger.
Northup has also taken more than $312,000 from the oil and gas industry PACs and employees, which you can research yourself here. In 2005 she voted for $85 billion worth of subsidies and tax breaks those industries [HR 6, Vote #445, 7/28/05] and in 2004 she voted against an amendment to the energy and water funding bill to increase renewable energy funding by $30 million [HR 4614, Vote #321, 6/25/2004].
Northup’s Holdings in Big Oil, Gas & Energy Companies
- Anadarko Petroleum: $50,001-$100,000
- Devon Energy: $100,001-$250,000
- Exxon Mobil: $50,001-$100,000
- Chevron: $50,001-$100,000
- Royal Dutch: $100,001-$250,000
- BP PLC: $50,001-$100,000
- Schlumberger: $100,001-$250,000
Anne may be a nice woman and a great mother, but let’s get real here. This is first-rate hypocrisy and proves she’s way more out of touch with Louisville residents and everyday Kentuckians than anyone could ever imagine.
