Republican lieutenant governor candidate called out on environment 

It seems Abel Maldonado, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, is getting a taste of his own medicine. After slamming his opponent Mayor Gavin Newsom over his wife’s investments in oil companies, including TransOcean, the company that’s responsible for the oil spill in the Gulf, the California League of Conservation Voters have some questions for Maldonado on the topic of the environment.

In a blog posted Wednesday, the group addresses Maldonado, asking him why he has a dirty record when it comes to environmental votes.

“Speaking of clean versus dirty energy, why have you continued to waffle on the issue of offshore oil drilling in California?” the blog reads.

In response to the blog, Maldonado’s spokesman Brandon Gesicki has a question for the League: Where was the group three weeks ago when their candidate, Newsom, was criticized for his wife’s investment in oil companies?
