Jeff Cloud

Recently on a so called conservative blog, the blogger has compared Commissioner Jeff Cloud (R) to the corrupt, egoistical Corporation Commissioner Jim Roth (D). A simple comparison of these two Commissioners shows that nothing could be further from the truth!

Cloud was elected by the voters to a six year term on the Commission. Roth was appointed by Governor Henry. Roth had zero experience in either the energy or utility sectors before his appointment to the Corporation Commission. But he had already earned a national reputation for being an outspoken proponent of so called “homosexual rights”.

The blogger is highly critical of Cloud for accepting campaign money from Oklahoma based Chesapeake Energy. However, Oklahoma Ethics Commission reports show that the majority of elected officials in Oklahoma receive contributions from Chesapeake – including most, if not all Republicans in both the House and Senate leadership! But this blogger hasn’t criticized the Speaker or either of the Senate Co-Presidents for taking Chesapeake money.

Ever since last year’s vote where Roth sided with Chesapeake to deny Oklahoma utility companies permission to build a coal powered plant, it is well known that Roth is in Chesapeake's pocket.

So why try to compare Cloud to Roth? The only thing that comes to mind is the blogger dislikes Chesapeake and his dislike for Chesapeake has his mind in a cloud.

Now let’s look at the difference between Cloud and the homosexual Roth. As an Oklahoma County Commissioner, Roth built a bridge to nowhere for a wealthy constitute with taxpayers money. The land owned by this wealthy constituent, who also happens to be the CEO of Chesapeake increased in value by 300% after this bridge was built by Roth. Cloud had nothing to do with this – other than pay taxes which were used to pay for this bridge.

This wealthy Roth donor and his company have donated over $100,000 to Roth's campaign. The same person is now Roth's campaign chairman. Meantime, Cloud has received less than half of that amount from Chesapeake.
Roth is the national poster child for homosexuals. Cloud is married with children.
Roth has taken thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from homosexuals outside of Oklahoma.
Roth has been known to campaigns out of his state office. This by the way is against the law.
Jeff Cloud does not campaign from his Corporation Commission office. Jeff follows the law.
Cloud hasn't taken any money from any homosexual groups.
Claiming that Cloud is in the same league as Roth is like trying to claim Jim Inhofe and Andrew Rice are from the same mold!

Jeff cloud worked for Henry Bellmon, Mickey Edwards, JC Watts, Kirk Humphreys. 100% pro life, 100% pro second amendment.

Let's take up a fund to help Jim Roth and his queer lover move to San Francisco after he loses November 4th.
