As Donald Trump's administration begins to take shape, we're learning more
and more about the Koch puppets that Trump is appointing to
#StaffTheSwamp.

.

The other day, an Environmental Defense Fund post called out Trump's EPA
Admin nominee Scott Pruitt for possible impropriety and what looks like
"pay-to-play" situations, where Pruitt, on multiple occasions, received
money from the energy industry and shortly after took efforts to defend
them.

.

And as E&E points out, since Pruitt has a super-PAC, he can still "keep
raising money from the corporate interests he is charged with regulating."
On top of that, as one of the first Cabinet-level appointees (who are
prohibited from soliciting money) to have a super-PAC (which exists to
solicit money), the legality and potential for corruption threatens to
undermine what little credibility Scott "unprecedented, secretive
alliance" Pruitt would have as the EPA administrator.

.

But not content merely pulling strings behind the scenes, the Koch network
continues to pander the public with an offensively ironic effort to
improve the reputation of fossil fuels by supposedly "standing up for
poor, underserved communities." (Similar efforts have been taken by
tobacco and soft drink companies to sell their products.) Hiroko Tabuchi,
in a great piece in the New York Times, pulls back the curtain on a Koch
effort to convert minorities to its fossil fuel religionin some cases
fairly literally, as the piece opens with a scene from a Koch-sponsored
gospel concert.

Sensing Gains Ahead Under Trump, the Kochs Court Minorities

The crowd that thronged a gospel concert last month in Richmond, Va., was
in for an unusual Christmas treat.

.

Your energy bills paid! the M.C. declared between soaring numbers from
recording artists like VaShawn Mitchell and Charles Jenkins, calling to a
young woman from the audience, who shrieked and started twirling on the
floor.

.

Though few in the crowd knew it, the concert had a powerful sponsor:
Fueling U.S. Forward, a public relations group for fossil fuels funded by
Koch Industries, the oil and petrochemicals conglomerate led by the
ultraconservative billionaire brothers David H. and Charles G. Koch. About
halfway through the event, the music gave way to a panel discussion on how
the holidays were made possible by energy  cheap energy, like oil and gas.

.

The concert flier was adorned with a red car bearing Christmas gifts.
Thankful for the fuels and innovation that make modern life possible, it
read.

.

The Kochs, whose use of their fortune to promote climate-change denial
research has angered environmentalists, are quietly courting new allies in
their quest for a fossil fuel resurgence: minorities.

.

Since its start in the spring of 2016, Fueling U.S. Forward has sent
delegates to, or hosted, at least three events aimed at black voters,
arguing that they benefit most from cheap and abundant fossil fuels and
have the most to lose if energy costs rise.

.

Fueling U.S. Forward is dedicated to educating the public about the value
and potential of American energy, the vast majority of which comes from
fossil fuels, the group says on its website. Well talk to people of
diverse backgrounds  industry employees, small-business owners, community
leaders and low-income families  and share their stories.

.

The group has seen early results from its outreach.

.

Policies that subsidize electric vehicles and solar panels for the wealthy
raise energy prices and harm the black community, read recommendations
adopted by delegates at the National Black Political Convention in Gary,
Ind., in August. The event brought together African-American political
groups and counted Fueling U.S. Forward among its sponsors.

.

Were standing up for poor, underserved communities, said Linda Haithcox,
executive director of the National Policy Alliance, which organized the
convention.
