First, The American Chemistry Council spent almost $200,000 to force a referendum vote to reverse an ordinance passed by the Seattle City Council to charge a 20 cent fee for disposable bags, and–now that the election is almost upon us– this same group has coughed up another $1.4 million to finish the job.
It’s the best democracy money can buy.
Luckily, you can still do something about it. If you live in Seattle, give The American Chemistry Council the finger and vote yes on Referendum 1. If you can’t vote, click on over to the Green Bag Campaign and lend a hand.
