"A forthcoming book by a pair of New York Times reporters reveals how a climate group’s criticism of Cedric Richmond’s appointment as a top White House adviser so angered the ex-Louisiana congressman that he lashed out at the group’s congressional allies in extremely vulgar terms.
According to This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future — a copy of which was obtained by The Independent ahead of its’ 3 May release — authors Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns recount how Mr Richmond, who represented Louisiana’s 2nd congressional district from 2011 to 2021, became irate after the Sunrise Movement, a left-wing climate advocacy group, attacked Mr Biden for naming him as a senior adviser and director of the Office of Public Liason in late November 2020.
The climate activist group had publicly questioned Mr Biden’s commitment to addressing climate change because Mr Richmond, who’d been a co-chairman of the then-president-elect’s successful 2020 campaign, had accepted campaign contributions from constituents who work for oil and gas companies."
