The Clients of Linda Pence: Big Oil

Or rather, her firm’s clients.

Wednesday, Linda Pence called on Attorney General Steve Carter to investigate the recent hike in gas prices in Indiana. She blamed price gouging.

Carter responded by pointing to busted pipelines, a hurricane closing almost five hundred oil platforms in the gulf, that big wind storm Pence was apparently oblivious to, and similar gas prices in neighboring states.

Carter then encouraged Pence to be forthcoming with any evidence of price fixing and collusion that might aid in an investigation by his office. Thus far, she hasn’t provided any.

Then Advance Indiana pointed out this:

After taking a look at Indiana’s Lobby Registration Commission records, a big client of Pence’s law firm may want to pursue an investigation of her. Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, the law firm where Pence is a partner, is registered to lobby the Indiana General Assembly on behalf of the BP Corporation, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies. Pence boasts that she once represented the U.S. Department of Energy in disputes with oil companies. “It is the job of the attorney general not to turn a blind eye to big oil,” Pence said. “In this situation, the attorney general should actively investigate the pricing practices in Indiana and why our consumers are treated differently.” And it’s your firm’s client, Ms. Pence. Why don’t you just call up your firm’s client and ask if they’re price gouging consumers?

Unbelievable.

Linda Pence has a habit of sticking her foot in her mouth and being a hypocrite when it comes to her own clients (corrupt state senators, co-defendants in East Chicago corruption cases, among others), but now she’s having the same problem with her firm’s clients.

I’m sorry, but it’s hard to believe you’re going to fight “big oil” when your law firm is lobbying for them (though I’d question how many locally-owned gas stations are “big oil”). It’s also hard to believe you’re going to fight corruption when you have an alarming habit of defending people and companies involved in corruption cases, and then not even disclosing that very fact to Hoosiers.
