Flashback: Locke with Chinese president Hu Jintao.
I reported extensively on former Washington state governor Gary Locke’s extensive China ties, conflicts of interest, and questionable judgments– all documented well before Locke “sailed through” his confirmation hearing with help from apathetic or clueless Republican senators.
Now comes word from Shanghai, via the WSJ, that Gary Locke said Americans “need to pay” for China’s carbon emissions:
“It’s important that those who consume the products being made all around the world to the benefit of America — and it’s our own consumption activity that’s causing the emission of greenhouse gases, then quite frankly Americans need to pay for that,” Commerce Secretary Gary Locke told the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.
Ed Morrissey has more.
I don’t want to hear any complaints in the Senate — especially from you, Sen. Hutchinson — about how Locke’s China pandering is going to hurt American businesses and taxpayers.
You were warned. And you were too “bored” to do anything about it.
You can find all the dirt on Locke in one handy place in Culture of Corruption…coming July 27.
