As we have commented on many times, this sick frack Tom Libous has been the Frack Lobby's Poster Boy in Albany. He never met a Fat Envelope he didn't like. Along with Skelos and Klein, Libouus killed every piece of fracking reform legislation in the Senate. Just like he was paid to do by the fracketeers in Oklahoma and Texas. These indictments are the tip of the fracking iceberg for Libous. He's the only state senator in Albany with Amex and Master Card stickers on his lapels. With Libous in … [Read more...] about Tom Libous Indicted by Feds for Fracketeering

Imagine that. Republican State Senator Tom Libous was the frackers' bag man in the New York State Senate. They even paid for his pro-fracking website.

To his credit as a crook, Libous stayed bought: He blocked every fracking reform bill in committee. Nothing came to the floor of the State Senate. Then Libous used his influence to get his … [Read more...] about Tom Libous, Fracketeer, Found Guilty of Fracketeering !

Senator Libous has made much about letting the people decide - as to whether or not they want to be fracking guinea pigs or not. So he put out a survey to his constituents to determine their sentiments on the matter. 54.8% did not not think that fracking would create good jobs for Upstate New Yorkers, which is true - exploring for dry shale gas will keep some out of state workers and migrant laborers busy for awhile, but is unlikely to provide many permanent local jobs. 57% said that the … [Read more...] about Libous Fracking Survey Results

My pal Matt Ryan was Binghamton's mayor when they passed a fracking ban. He is a courageous guy. Vic Furman, aka Frackman, a spokesman for the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York, is notorious for indecent exposure in public, harassing fractavist speakers, and drinking what he says is frack flowback at fractavist demonstrations. They ran into each other in a bar, and The Matt knocked the fracking chickenhawk on his butt. Go figure. Furman, who outweighs Ryan by over 150 pounds, is seeking a … [Read more...] about Fractavist Mayor Decks Fracking Chickenhawk in Bar
