Chiles wants grand jury review of PSC

Independent gubernatorial candidate Bud Chiles (who back in the 90s used to promote the agenda of utility companies) is calling on Gov. Chiles to request a grand jury investigation into the Public Service Commission. Chiles said he spoke with PSC Chairwoman Nancy Argenziano and Commissioner Nathan Skop, who had been booted off the commission by the PSC Nominating Council after having opposed utlity company rate increase requests. Two other commissioners who opposed the increased were not confirmed by the Florida Senate.

“Never in Florida’s history have special interests so actively and effectively subverted the will of the people," Chiles said. "The message to new commissioners is clear: side with consumers and we’ll have you removed.  The people have a right to understand how this travesty happened....The members of the PSC Nominating Council have shown blatant disregard for the interests of Florida's consumers."

Of all people, Chiles is chiming in about "special interests sbverting the will of the people."!!
He must have alzeimer's about his 1993 PSC scandal, with his Chiles' Communications' lobbyist suggesting to a Pinellas County PSC woman commissioner a hint about her vote in an electric rate case!
Refer to an archived search under Chiles in the St pete Times..Beardsley, I believe the woman 's name was. And Chiles the son said he would not solicit any communication from the PSC when his Father became Governor.
Sent the article to the Tally bureau girls and boys..Any time you guys!
