Keystone XL pipeline corruption investigation

Posted Oct. 6, 2011 / Posted by: Nick Berning

The tangled web of corruption surrounding the Keystone XL pipeline implicates lobbyists and government officials alike. DeSmogBlog, Oil Change International, The Other 98% and Friends of the Earth investigated the cozy relationships between key State Department officials and corporate lobbyists, and they lead all the way to the president’s doorstep.

President Obama made a campaign promise to shut out oil lobbyists, yet the State Department’s blatant bias toward approving the Keystone XL pipeline is a clear example of oil influence over our democracy.

Check out the investigation board and then take action to urge President Obama to end oil lobby influence and stop the Keystone XL pipeline. You can learn more about the scandal here.
