Dem Candidate Cisneros Invested in Oil Sector Despite Campaigning Against It

Gil Cisneros, a Democrat running in California’s toss-up 39th Congressional District, has investments in more than 30 companies in the oil and gas sectors through his personal foundation, including one company that paid the U.S. government millions in settlements after bribing officials at an Uzbek state-controlled oil firm, according to a review of his foundation’s tax forms. In spite of this, Cisneros has been campaigning against the industry as part of his plan to defend the environment and combat climate change.
