Room 8 Comment of the day:
I have in some areas of public policy expressed support for informed consent, but among the problems with informed consent for fracking is that the potential environmental problems do not restrict themselves to those who've availed themselves of the option (we won't even talk about the environmental justice issues).

Nick Pinto proves himself a willful liar.
“There are a lot of reasons to bet on Velázquez in this race. Her new district shares a lot of turf with the one she has had locked down through 10 terms, she's firmly ensconced in Brooklyn's Democratic machine politics…”
Some people emailed me, defending Pinto on the grounds he may have been either too lazy or two stupid to figure out that “the machine” actually opposed Velazquez.
But it turns out that Pinto already knew this and lied in his article.
On /6/12 Pinto had already written:
"There's no question that the Martinez campaign is a long-shot, up against three other candidates including 20-year incumbent Nydia Velazquez and machine-backed City Councilor Erik Dilan."
I’d call this pretty conclusive proof that Pinto purposefully distorted what he knew to be true to help his candidate. NY1 Freezes Congressional Candidate George Martinez Out of Debate, May Reconsider blogs.villagevoice.com
Verdict: Crowley is an economic illiterate; Lancman lies about Meng's positions, and Meng still hasn't explained why she thinks people making over $110,000 should be paying a smaller share of their income to Social Security than those who make less.
More proof that Robert Mittman's campaign is a fictitious creation of the Queens County Democratic Organization.
Those close to the President signal their worry that having Barron as a Democratic nominee for Congress would hurt the party nationally.
This article inadvertently creates a false impression which I thought was worth clarifying.
