ETHANOL SMEAR CAMPAIGN BACKED BY SAUDI OIL MONEY
Source: DomesticFuel.com

Americans United for Change and VoteVets.org held a press call to reveal IRS documents showing that Saudi Oil money is helping to finance the multi-million dollar anti-renewable fuel smear campaign ads that the American Petroleum Institute (API) is waging against ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Also, the API held a press call to once again call for the lowering of ethanol volumes as mandated by the RFS. As of today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has not published its final renewable volume obligations (RVO) for 2014 as they continue to sift through more than 25,000 comments submitted in response to their proposal.

In response to the continued attacks on biofuels, Americans United for Change is launching a Sunday show TV blitz aimed at both the public, legislators and key decisions makers in the Beltway in an attempt to set the record straight.

Part of the ad calls out how foreign oil interests are attempting to keep America addicted to dirty petroleum products.

According to tax documents, Saudi Arabia has been a funder of API dating back to 2008 and an employee of Saudi Aramco - a company with an estimated worth of $7 trillion by Financial Times, actually held a seat on API's board.

"The Kingdom" will air May 4, 2014 on Meet the Press, Face the Nation, This Week and Fox News Sunday in the Washington, D.C. market.
