Moeller and the GMA Ethanol Smear Campaign

Joe Moeller is a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA).  In 2008, it was revealed that the GMA had spearheaded a public-relations smear campaign on ethanol fuels.  The GMA teamed with public relations firm the Glover Park Group to take an aggressive public relations campaign to Capitol Hill.  The aim of the campaign was to repeal the ethanol mandates passed in the 2007 Energy Bill. It sought to “change perceptions about the benefits of biofuels and the mandate [of the Energy Bill].”
