ExxonMobil’s CEO, Rex Tillerson, joins a lawsuit to prevent fracking near HIS Texas home

In case anyone missed this little jewel in the crown of hypocrisy, ExxonMobil’s CEO, Rex Tillerson joined a lawsuit earlier this year to prevent fracking near his multimillion dollar Dallas mansion, saying, among other things, that it would devalue his property.

Who was the lead plaintiff of this lawsuit? None other than former GOP House Majority Leader Dick Armey who is also former chairman of FreedomWorks (who lobby on behalf of the fracking industry with Koch Bros. money). Ahhhh – that awkward moment when you realize that you’ve been caught on the other side of the fence.

You just can’t make this stuff up.
