Justice and Drew: Jamie Long’s Cushy University Job Was Created to Refute American Experiment’s Energy Work
Last week Justice and Drew told it like it is by exposing the fact that Representative Jamie Long’s position at the University Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment was created to refute American Experiment’s work on the high cost of renewable energy in Minnesota.
More specifically, the position created at the University for Representative Long was expected to “provide a ‘truth squad’” to “debunk right-wing misinformation spread by a local ‘think tank’ about the reliability and cost of renewable energy, fossil fuels, and nuclear,” according to emails obtained in a data practices request.
The fact that the liberal McKnight Foundation wanted to launder $50,000 through the University to hire Representative Long shows that the other side knows American Experiment is a big difference in the energy debate, and they are deploying an “all hands on deck” strategy to try and refute our work.
