PolitiFact: Did Rex Tillerson sue to keep fracking out of own back yard?

Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state, doesn’t have a problem with fracking until it affects him, says a consumer rights group.

“ExxonMobil is a major player in the fracking industry, and #ExxonKnew climate change was a problem for decades, but covered up the evidence,” reads a campaign letter from Food & Water Watch. “Tillerson infamously sued to keep a fracking project out of his backyard, but seems happy to profit off fracking in other people’s backyards.”
