How Will Wolf Vote on Energy and the Environment?

There are important votes coming up in Congress regarding energy and global warming. It will be very interesting to see how Frank Wolf votes, particularly given this record:

*Frank Wolf has demonstrated that he is out of touch with his constituents by repeatedly voting with the Bush administration and their friends with Big Oil.

*Wolf's taken over $70,000 from oil and gas companies while voting five times against legislation to crack down on gas price gouging.

*Wolf supported the Bush energy plan, which provides huge subsidies to the oil and gas industry.

*In 2005, Wolf voted against an alternative energy plan that would bring immediate relief to consumers at the pump, increase the nation’s investment into renewable fuels and energy efficiency and crack down on price gouging. The plan would have extend for five years the tax credit that provides incentives for investments in solar, wind, geothermal and biomass technologies and provide several tax incentives for energy efficiency.

In other words, stay tuned for whether Wolf votes against the environment and clean energy alternatives once again.

I wish Frank could kick as much ass as Nancy Pelosi does.
