Doolittle brings Tahoe some bacon

Congressman John Doolittle is in full campaign mode as he makes a round of rare appearances throughout his district. He just popped up in No Lake Tahoe for a grip and grin photo op to accompany his press release about securing $500,000 in federal funds for fire prevention. Lest you become the least bit misty-eyed over this apparent concern over the environment at the lake, lets take a quick glance at Doolittle's environmental voting record:

  • Voted YES on deauthorizing "critical habitat" for endangered species. (Sep 2005)
  • Voted YES on speeding up approval of forest thinning projects. (Nov 2003)
  • Rated 0% by the League of Conservation Voters, indicating anti-environment votes. (Dec 2003)
