Open Letter to Greenwire reporter, Sarah Abruzzese

Dear Ms. Abruzzese,

In a recent article, you mentioned Americans for Job Security and repeated their messaging, but neglected to reveal to your readers that they are a "sham front group" that has a history of running misleading ads.

For further reading, you can see:

Supporting clean energy reform would actually bring significant benefits to Virginia: http://www.e2.org/ext/doc/State%20Fact%20Sheet%20Virginia.pdf

I hope you find this information useful and can avoid similar omissions in the future.
