U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris claimed that she will never waver when it comes to protecting Florida's coastline from offshore oil drilling. Yet, in April she voted for an energy bill that would have paved the way for drilling off Florida's coast by weakening the safeguards against new drilling projects.
Later, she voted against the final energy bill, which included an inventory of offshore oil and gas along our nation's coastlines. This stinks of a political makeover for her Senate campaign.
I don't trust Harris to protect our coastlines. Will she side with Floridians or with oil and gas companies?
