Group Asks North Carolina Attorney General to Investigate Possible Conflicts of Interest Behind NC’s Rush to Frack
Some of North Carolina’s State legislators have been rather hurried in their efforts to open up North Carolina to drilling and fracking for natural gas, leading many residents to wonder why. Today, Food & Water Watch submitted a letter to North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper that outlines serious conflicts of interest and a “pattern of political patronage” among public officials in the Governor’s administration, on the Mining and Energy Commission, and in the General Assembly. The letter calls on Attorney General Cooper to investigate the conflicts of interests presented by the financial ties of prominent figures pushing fracking in North Carolina.

"Before North Carolina starts granting permits to the fracking industry, voters have a right to know the truth about who in our leadership stands to gain financially,” said Jorge Aguilar, Food & Water Watch's Southern regional director. “We also have a right to put public health and the environment ahead of the conflicted interests of a select few who are leading the push to frack North Carolina."
