    Holy cow:

    WASHINGTON (July 31, 2009) – Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Chairman of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, released the following statement in response to news reports of forged letters being sent to a Member of Congress by a Washington lobbying firm working against clean energy legislation:

    “This fraud on Congress shows that some opponents of clean energy have resorted to forgery and theft to block progress.

    “This is an appalling abuse, and Congressman Tom Perriello deserves great credit for seeing through it and casting a vote that will create clean energy jobs in Virginia and throughout the United States. I encourage all Members of Congress to be on the lookout for other suspicious and illegal materials.

    “My Select Committee will immediately begin an investigation of the extent and scope of this activity.”
