I recently arrived home to find a door handle flyer for Rep. Peter Roskam which, with its photography and generalized claims, seems to imply that he cares about the environment.

Time for the true picture to be painted.

In the 110th Congress, Peter Roskam has one of the worst conservation voting records in the House of Representatives.

He has voted for the environment only 15 percent of the time.

Visit the Web site of the League of Conservation Voters to see the details.

In 2008, he has already voted against the Clean Energy Act (H.R. 6), the Clean Air Act (H.R. 2643) and the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2008 (H. R. 5351), all of which move us closer to the goals of cleaner air to breathe, climate protection and energy-independence.

If you truly care about clean water to drink, clean air to breathe and energy-independence, start supporting Jill Morgenthaler for Congress today with your money and your time.
