This is Claudia Tenney’s second time on LCV Victory Fund’s Dirty Dozen. Tenney is a climate denialist and is on the record calling climate change an “imaginary beast.” She has said that climate change was not “a significant threat to our planet” and has received nearly $200,000 in campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry. While in the House from 2017- 2019, she earned a lifetime LCV score of 6% — voting against protections for New York’s environment and public health, and putting corporate special interests ahead of her constituents. Tenney voted in line with President Trump 96% of time, praising his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord and voting to eliminate Affordable Care Act protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions like diabetes and asthma, while letting corporate polluters spew more toxins into our air.Tenney also voted to repeal the Clean Water Rule that protected drinking water sources for over 117 million Americans and let corporate polluters contaminate our water with toxic chemicals.
