“Matthew Putorti, a Democrat challenging Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, has repeatedly expressed concern about climate change, but previously worked for an oil company attempting to recoup losses after a major spill.”

“As a lawyer at the New York City-based law firm Anderson Kill, Putorti appeared in court in 2013 on behalf of United Refining Co., a Pennsylvania-based oil company. Putorti and United requested that a federal judge order insurance companies to pay United $20.5 million in the wake of the 2010 Enbridge oil spill. A rupture in the Enbridge pipeline near Marshall, Michigan, released more than one million gallons into the Kalamazoo River. It was the second-largest inland oil spill in U.S. history.”

“Putorti’s representation of United stands in sharp contrast to his campaign rhetoric on climate change.”

“Putorti did not respond to multiple requests for comment from the Daily Caller.”

Comment from the Stefanik campaign 

“We can’t wait for 2022. Far-Left New York Lawyer Matt Putorti is a total fraud. While living and working in New York City for over a decade, he was a registered agent of the Terrorist supporting state of Qatar, a lawyer for the official propaganda arm of the Communist Chinese Party, and for Big Oil. He doesn’t represent the values or positions of the North Country.”
