Greenpeace Calls For DNC To Sever Duke Energy Ties

Duke Energy has become highly involved with the Democratic National Convention, with chief executive James Rogers soliciting donations and helping to guarantee a loan for the convention.

But not everyone is pleased.

Greenpeace issued a letter Friday calling for the DNC to sever its ties with Duke Energy, questioning the company's ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council and the push for voter identification laws.

In a letter to Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and President Barack Obama, Greenpeace USA Executive Director Phil Radford writes that "by doing business with Duke Energy, you are supporting a radically conservative agenda that seeks to weaken public participation in American politics."
