Environmental Group: What’s Sandra Lee Cooking With The Gas Industry?

0

The anti-fracking group Food & Water Watch is questioning Sandra Lee’s decision to speak at a conference of petroleum executives, saying she should disclose how much she was paid because she is Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s live-in girlfriend.

“Your leadership in New York reverberates throughout the nation,” a letter the group wrote the Cuomo states. “As a powerful state, federal agencies and affected communities around the country are watching what unfolds there regarding fracking regulations. You are also a prominent leader with known ambitions beyond the state. That is why we urge you to address these transparency problems, starting with disclosing the sources of Sandra Lee’s petroleum industry income.”

As a prominent television cook, Lee’s business dealings and how it relates to Cuomo’s role as governor were raised in a recent Wall Street Journal article.
