New Ad Challenges Paul Ryan’s Dirty Oil Ties

Today, the League of Conservation Voters launched a new television ad using ThinkProgress video in Wisconsin’s 1st District calling out Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for his recently exposed conflict of interest for defending oil subsidies while his family receives hundreds of thousands of dollars from oil company payouts:


“Congressman Ryan should stop asking Wisconsin taxpayers to continue funding massive government handouts to the most profitable oil companies,” said Navin Nayak, LCV senior vice president of campaigns, “especially when his family stands to benefit from some of those same companies’ earnings.”
