Sen. Greg Ball made a cameo appearance today at an anti-fracking event in the Well of the Legislative Office Building.

Ball, a Republican from Patterson, Putnam County, has been a staunch opponent of fracking—a rare stance in his conference and an unlikely one for Ball, a conservative Republican. He has led hearings and events in his district opposed to hydrofracking.

He joked that most of the people at the event would likely vote against him twice if they lived in his district—in the morning and then at night.

But he said members of the Tea Party want to hold the industry accountable. (ARTICLE)
