Did Steve Miller of ACCCE just mislead Congress for the second time this morning?
Miller just told Rep. Ed Markey’s committee that his group did not lobby the federal government until April 2008.
But online records show lobby spending by Americans for Balanced Energy Choices (ABEC) — the name that ACCCE previously used — going back to 2001.
Maybe Miller is hanging his statement on the claim that ACCCE and ABEC are different organizations. But if so, that would be so misleading as to almost constitute an outright lie.
Earlier today, Miller said that ACCCE never opposed the climate bill. But that appears not to be true.
