Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) followed Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in questioning oil company executives yesterday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gas prices. Sessions’ comments seem directed at Sen. Whitehouse’s comments cited below.
Well, this is a free country, and if you want to invest your money in expressing a view on science, you have every right to do so. And I think you have an individual responsibility to make sure it’s done with integrity, because you’re major corporations and you have great responsibilities.
I understand fundamentally that a responsible, large corporation exists to make a profit, but you have a responsibility also to do so in a way that’s consistent with high ethical standards.
