I am hearing ads on KPOJ for the website LightsOnOregon.com.
I am a radical progressive and even I was tempted to electronically sign the petition on their website but something is hinky here!
In these ads "Lights on Oregon" seems to be promoting alternative energy, but the text of the radio ad is mean and bullying and smells like a right-wing attack ad.
Lights on Oregon, is acting like a progressive organization promoting alternative energy when in reality they may be cynically obfuscating their true intention of promoting "tort reform" and removing our rights as individuals to challenge a wide variety of inconsiderate projects planned by major corporations in Oregon.
Some cursory web searches revealed little except for a few disturbing connections.
The website is hosted by Oregon Freedom Works.
Freedom Works nationals' highest paid fundraiser in Oregon is Kevin Mannix.
Two of Freedom Works nationals' biggest contributers are big tobacco and big pharma.
These may just be coincidences and Oregon Freedom Works working as Lights on Oregon may be sincere in their attempts to promote alternative energy but I don't think so.
