ALBANY, N.Y. – A formal complaint filed with New York's lobbying board asks it to investigate whether Artists Against Fracking, a group that includes Yoko Ono and other A-List celebrities, is violating the state's lobbying law, according to the document obtained by The Associated Press.

The Independent Oil & Gas Association, an industry group that supports gas drilling, filed the complaint Tuesday with the state's Joint Commission on Public Ethics.

Not that I am a Lennon fan, but just how much acid was he on? Surely he was stoned when he got hooked up with this idiot.

Of course, if we could get her to do a ‘We are the world’ song against fracking, we’d get most of the antis flocking to our side.

Ono must be running out of John Lennon’s money and is looking for a new gig. Gun control and now this fiasco.

And to think that she could have broken up some of those art rock “progressive” (BARF!) rock groups of the 1970s instead!

If John Lennon were alive today he would be the first to lease his farm in Delaware County to the gas companies, and love the bucks...he was a conservative in a lot of ways...

Yes. The lyrics to “Revolution” shocked a lot of putative young commies, back in the day.

“But when you want money
For people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait

and:

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow

Nobody would frack her unless under LSD. What a pathetic excuse for a woman.

Artists Against Fracking, a group that includes Yoko Ono and other A-List celebrities...

A pressure group proud to display its absolute ignorance of the subject.

They believe they don't have to comply with the law because they're celebrities

Actually, they don't have to comply with the law, but not because they are celebritites, but because they are Democrats. The most they will get is a slap on the wrist.

********************************

From the article:

New York voters were for the first time opposed to fracking, 46 percent to 39 percent.

Fine. Let them buy fuel form the lest sophisticated states who frack.
