Fracking critics bombard Perdue's office asking for veto

Gov. Bev Perdue is facing intense pressure to veto legislation legalizing a controversial practice of natural gas, known as fracking.

Perdue's office has received nearly 8,000 emails since June 8 with most of them asking her to veto the fracking bill, according to a spokesman.

Environmental groups are stirring up opposition, taking out full page newspapers ads and asking opponents to call the governor's office. The governor's office received another 2,800 phone calls since the issue hit the radar a few months ago.

Uh, N&O....

... if Perdue got that many letters and pohone calls, clearly the anti-fracking sentiment is held by many ordinary people who don't otherwise pay attention to any issues at all. I find this reporting pretty lame. 

"bombard" ???

"bombard" is such a harsh war-like word.

Are the Anti-Frackers "harsh war-like people" ??
