Right-Wing Blogger Hoft Criticizes Summer Heat Relief For The Elderly And Chronically Ill

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

Right-wing blogger Jim Hoft expressed outrage Friday that an Ohio county is distributing air conditioners for needy families to bring relief from record-high summer temperatures.

Hoft is criticizing this program despite including in his post the fact that the funds used for the air conditioners are not new, but are left over from money already allocated to the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). He also includes the information that the air conditioners are only available to the poor, the elderly, and those with chronic respiratory illnesses.
