"Former Vice President Joe Biden flatly declared “I am committed to not raising money from fossil fuel executives” while attending a fundraiser hosted by the founder of a fossil fuel company.
According to a Bloomberg story, Biden attended a New York City campaign event on Thursday night hosted by Andrew Goldman, who helped start the Houston-based natural gas export facilities company, Western LNG.
“I just want to be very clear to everyone here that I am committed to not raising money from fossil fuel executives and I’m not doing that here,” Biden reportedly said to the assembled donors. The campaign refused comment for the Bloomberg story.
Goldman is currently managing director for a New York-based money management firm and no longer has any day-to-day role in Western LNG. However, per Bloomberg, that company’s financial filings note Goldman remains “a long-term investor in the liquefied natural gas sector.”
