That's Cedric Richmond, the only (D) congress-critter from Louisiana. He serves the New Orleans area and found himself a job in the Biden administration. They announced it yesterday.
Only problem for Cedric is that he ain't "left" enough. The woke bunch is wailing and moaning that he's tied to Big Oil.
Progressive environmental group the Sunrise Movement on Tuesday criticized President-elect Joe Biden’s selection of Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) to be his senior adviser over Richmond’s fossil fuel donations.
It seems that Richmond took money from the oil industry. As does every Louisiana politician who wants money for yard signs.
“One of President-Elect Biden’s very first hires for his new administration has taken more donations from the fossil fuel industry during his Congressional career than nearly any other Democrat, cozied up to Big Oil and Gas, and stayed silent and ignored meeting with organizations in his own community while they suffered from toxic pollution and sea-level rise,” said Varshini Prakash, the group’s executive director, in a statement.
The Dems have a huge problem. One of them being that if their plans work out, they won't have Trump to rail against. They are going to have to pick a new target, because wailing and moaning only works if you have someone to wail about.
