Two years ago, while some candidates cozied up to Sam Bankman-Fried, I strongly warned about the dangers of crypto. After, SBF spent $500,000 to defeat me. Today, SBF was just found guilty for fraud & I’m running for Congress to ensure this never happens again. Learn more ⬇️: https://t.co/YGZzp6g5Rf

I’m a working Mom, DeWitt Town Councilor & Air Force veteran. Last year, I ran for Congress & fell just short after corrupt crypto bro Sam Bankman-Fried spent nearly half a million to beat me. This year, the House majority runs through #NY22 so I'm running for Congress again. pic.twitter.com/dGDThWKet4

@Strikeslip 61% of our power comes from fossil fuels & current demand is exceeding growth in renewables. If it’s placing burdens on our grids, then there’s an increased demand for fossil fuels. Every EV we put on the road last year was offset by the carbon generated just by crypto mining.

@MARINHAZz @HawkeyeFan1983 Here’s a short list. Also, it gives you the perception that you’re in control of your own money. It’s unregulated. Every single crypto exchange in the US is under SEC investigation right now. Which is exactly why the industry is lobbying congress to not be regulated by the SEC. pic.twitter.com/IJFeKlTK5h

@MARINHAZz @HawkeyeFan1983 The White House specifically targets bitcoin mining for its massive energy consumption. Proof of work crypto mining entails massive energy consumption that exceeds the yearly energy uses of many developed countries. That info is available but not in crypto fanboy publications.

@MARINHAZz @HawkeyeFan1983 If the US were to ban bitcoin mining would bitcoin go up or down? What they’re saying is totally fair and needed because proof of work mining is so damaging to our environment and long term goals that they’re threatening to shut it down if they don’t get their act together.
