Colorado Moonbat Governor John Hickenlooper said that the state of Colorado has an “obligation” to sue Fort Collins for banning oil and gas development within the city limits.
“The governor takes no joy in suing local government. As a former mayor he respects local planning and control. He also has an obligation to uphold the law. The governor wants to be honest with local communities about the state’s legal obligations. Bans like the one under consideration in Fort Collins violate state law,” Said Hickenlooper spokesman Eric Brown.
Hickenlooper earlier old CBS4 that banning oil and gas exploration/production within Fort Collins’ city limits is equivalent to “taking” of the mineral rights of the city’s own citizens. Hickenlooper also said that the state has “no choice” but to sue every city, town or county that chooses to ban oil and gas development and fracking.
The Fort Collins City Council is scheduled on March 5 to make a final decision on a ban on oil and gas development within the city.
Liberal explanation: Obviously, Hickenlooper’s drinking of fracking fluid two weeks ago has turned him into Lord Voldemort.
