MITCHELL: STEROIDS BAD, TOBACCO GOOD!

While George Mitchell lectures us on the dangers of steroids and HGH, he obviously has a soft spot of tobacco use.

In an article by
Dave Zirin, columnist for sports illustrated.com

"Mitchell's sins are as lengthy as they are hidden. First, there is the senator's drug of choice: tobacco, a substance that has tagged more toes than any steroid."

"Mitchell's law firm Verner, Lipfert, Bernhard, McPherson and Hand "earned more than $10 million in fees in 1997 from the five largest tobacco companies." The work has continued, with big tobacco paying top dollar to make sure they can survive the class-action lawsuit settlements that threaten to bankrupt their industry."

DON'T DRINK THE WATER!

"General Electric hired Mitchell to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from forcing them to clean the spew they've emptied into the Hudson River. Over the course of decades, GE dumped polychlorinated biphenyl, or PCBs into the Hudson with devastating results for the wildlife, environment and people of New York state. The Clinton and Bush administrations both endorsed an EPA plan to make GE pay $450 million in clean-up costs. GE's response has been to spend millions on gold-plated lobbyists like Mitchell to hold them off."

CHOCO-HOLIC?

"Mitchell was hired to stop Congress from labeling candy that may have been picked by child or slave labor. The reports of abuse, confirmed by the Ivory Coast government, were so harrowing that Congress appeared ready to act. The Chocolate Manufacturers of America saw a PR nightmare and called Mitchell."
