They say that a mistake in politics is when a politician says what he really means. Ryan Zinke was the keynote speaker at an oil and gas industry event in Louisiana this week. There’s no recording of his remarks, but the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association tweeted their version of what he said:
“Our government should work for you, the #oilandgas industry.”
No denial from Zinke, and it’s not hard to imagine that’s the way he feels.
If he was working for us, we’d tell him to stop selling off federal land, and stop leasing BLM minerals in sensitive areas.
