For those wondering why a group called the Hispanic Access Foundation in Washington, D.C. is funding a media campaign against U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner for his vote last month to repeal the Obama-era methane rule, the answer appears to be that George Soros told them to.

Michael Sandoval with Western Wire obtained the group’s IRS filings and discovered the funding link:

The group did not disclose, however, that it is directly funded by the New Venture Fund, a foundation that has received nearly $5.9 million in funding from the Foundation to Promote Open Society, a group founded and funded by Soros.

The print and radio ads from the Washington-based groups claim that Gardner put oil and gas interests ahead of Colorado communities.

How? His vote allows companies to “waste hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer-owned gas.”

Well why didn’t they say so earlier? We suspect this also comes as a surprise to gas companies that they are losing hundreds of millions of profits, as well as money that would be paid in royalties to the feds.

By all means, the government needs to invent new regulations to help business make more money. It might eventually make up for all the millions it has cost them in useless regulations.
