Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams is back from her world tour, apparently having successfully served as an election observer in Nigeria. The “election denier denier” is now throwing her weight around with an environmental group reportedly connected to some of the recent calls for gas stove bans and regulations.
Earlier this week, Fox News reported that Abrams will serve as senior counsel for Rewiring America. In that role, she will help “launch and scale a national awareness campaign and a network of large and small communities working to help Americans go electric.”
It would appear that Abrams will help lead the push for the electrification of America.
“She will also guide the organization as it builds the tools and capacity to connect Americans and their communities to machines, installers, Inflation Reduction Act incentives, and jobs in the clean energy transition,” the group said.
The group may claim that the effort is being done out of love of Mother Nature, but a cynic — and some might say a realist — would allege that it is one giant cash grab.
Consider that as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, the Biden administration is spending more than $300 billion on green energy initiatives. That’s a whole lot of moolah up for grabs if you can get in on it early. That money is being steered by uber creep and Democrat staple John Podesta.
Fox News has also previously reported that the founders of Rewiring America — Alex Laskey, Saul Griffith, and Ari Matusiak — have made significant money off government funding in the green energy sphere while advocating for policies that benefit their bottom dollar via the non-profit group.
“It’s a shocking amount of money that they’re hauling in with this scheme of theirs,” Tom Pyle, the president of the Institute for Energy Research, told Fox News. “I call it Big Green Inc. It is literally a business for these guys and they cloak themselves in the mantra of trying to save the planet. But, really, this is just very sophisticated self-dealing.”
Nevertheless, Abrams insists that her involvement is purely one of passion.
“What keeps me awake at night is that the communities who need the help the most and who could benefit the most from this economic opportunity get left out,” she said in a media interview. “That’s why I am here.”
Right, surely it has nothing to do with the “money, money, money, money, money, money, money” being sloshed around in the green energy world these days, to quote White House climate czar John Kerry.
