This Measure Z op-ed by Matthew Spiegl, local environmental attorney and HuffPost contributor, tells how Big Oil is polluting our politics AND contaminating our water. Please read and share.

"Political prostitution is not a victimless crime and when it comes to matters of the environment, all too often humankind finds itself the unwilling victim.

Measure Z, an anti-fracking measure in Monterey County, California is a perfect example of how Big Oil preys on small town politicians to push their global agenda ― the extraction of oil and gas at all costs ― unrepentant of the social disruption, political strife and environmental damage it leaves behind.

Chevron Corporation and Aera Energy LLC are pouring millions of dollars into Monterey County in a disingenuous ad campaign."
