Rosa Delauro's Ties To BP Challenged

Republican candidate for Congress Jerry Labriola Tuesday called on Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro to explain why she hasn’t disclosed her husband’s lucrative relationship with the company behind the largest environmental disaster in American history.

Stanley Greenberg is president of a public relations and polling company which represents British Petroleum (BP), which owns the damaged drilling site which continues to spew oil into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

“Rosa DeLauro is an insider, and because she’s an insider, she has said nothing about the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Labriola. “Worse, Rosa DeLauro has not disclosed this conflict perhaps because of her husband’s business interests.”

Rosa DeLauro, the second highest ranking woman in the Congress next to Nancy Pelosi, claims on her official website: “we have a responsibility to protect our natural resources and ensure that we have a clean, healthy environment.”

“Stan Greenberg is entitled to make a living, but where is the line?” asked Labriola. “One has to ask: does the money Stan Greenberg makes conflict with his wife’s ability to represent the people of the 3rd Congressional District and her claims on her website?”
