Tom Perez joins Thom Hartmann to discuss the latest Democratic National Committee meeting in which environmental activists and media outlets reported that Perez introduced a resolution which would allow the DNC to accept fossil fuel money. Thom opened with questioning Perez on this resolution. Perez replied saying, "we've taken no money" from fossil fuel companies. He goes on to explain that the prior resolution had excluded workers and the labor movement. Notably, he never said that the DNC "will not" accept donations from fossil fuel companies, only that the DNC has not done so yet in his tenure as chair.
