Dave Reichert finds the cost of freedom.
Texas Freedom, that is, as in Republican energy boss Joe Barton's Texas Freedom fund, which he uses…
...to funnel vast sums of cash from Big Oil executives and lobbyists into competitive campaigns around the country, particularly into campaigns where filthy oil money might prove embarrassing to the recipients.Most of it goes out in $1000 chunks, but Reichert's worth $2500 to the GOP apologist in chief and his big oil benefactors. That's the seventh largest of the 31 contributions the Fund has doled out to Republican House candidates this cycle, according to Open Secrets.
A not so open secret is what situational environmentalist Dave Reichert's done to become one of Big Oil's best buddies.
