So, now Change.org allows corporate accounts to create corporate petitions intended to influence the decisions of public officials from which the corporation can profit? That sounds suspiciously like LOBBYING to me... What do you call it when a corporation asks its employees, and their mommies, and little sisters, to pretend they're some sort of "grassroots" supporter in favor of the corporation's for-profit proposal?
I think I shall call it... stupidity.
Clean Line is not an advocacy "organization" allowed to create and promote petitions under Change.org's rules. It's a for-profit limited liability corporation. Shame on you, Clean Line!
How desperate is Clean Line, anyhow? How much trouble are they in on their Plains & Eastern transmission line's request to use the authority of the federal government to condemn and take land from thousands of "little people" across Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee?
Do you think the decision of Secretary of Energy, Ernest Moniz, will hinge on Clean Line's petition signatures? I certainly hope not. That would be absurd.
