Rachel Maddow Features Waterkeeper Alliance Photos Showing Duke Energy Dumping Coal Ash Into Local Waterways

The Rachel Maddow Show reported Monday on the latest discovery by Waterkeeper Alliance of water being pumped from Duke Energy coal ash ponds into local waterways. Maddow also delves into a new report by the Associated Press that claims Gov. McCroy's (R-NC) cozy relationship with Duke Energy led to a change in North Carolina law protecting the company's coal ash pits and allowing them to pollute larger areas. 

Waterkeeper Alliance released aerial surveillance photos taken from a fixed-wing aircraft which shows Duke Energy workers pumping wastewater from two of Duke Energy's toxic coal ash lagoons into a canal that drains into the Cape Fear River.
