Update: In a 30-2 vote, the Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations. https://t.co/IRbaSQ2DLc

Hardest hit is Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, who authored the previous resolution and reportedly wasn’t even consulted on this new one:
Yes it passed. Final vote 30-2. In a reversal of my June resolution – and in a new resolution written without consulting me or environmental stakeholders – DNC will now take fossil fuel “employers’ political action committees.” But please PLEASE do not give up – we will prevail!

This is just breaking tonight, but we expect folks will be mighty pissed about it:
Hey @DNC – WE SEE YOU. Every single one of these people that has been listed is now making a choice about climate change. A vote to reverse this decision and accept money from fossil fuels is a vote IN FAVOR OF CLIMATE CHANGE. We're taking notes.

Narrator voice: They’re going backwards:
Hell no. Democrats must be the party that recognizes the existential threat of climate change & fights to create millions of jobs through a just transition to a clean energy, carbon negative economy. We're not going backwards, @TomPerez. @RL_Miller @billmckibben @joshfoxfilm https://t.co/rKIX1mMKBn

In 2016, Dem were pretty hypocritical about donations so it looks like they’re just returning to the norm:
