A matter of nuclear responsibility

Kamala Harris's Office is a *Party to the ongoing CPUC investigation proceedings*, so she and her staff not only knew what was happening but they were in a unique position (as CA Lawyers) to advise the CPUC that it's ALJ's were not allowing a fair and impartial discovery process that would insure CA ratepayers would get an unbiased investigation into who was responsible for San Onofre being shut down prematurely and more importantly for most ratepayers, who should pay for it. I know for a fact that many technical documents related to San Onofre that were sent to CA Senator Barbara Boxer, the NRC and the Media were also sent to Kamala Harris's Office, so she will have a tough time saying that she was not aware of what happened at San Onofre, since those sending the documents specifically asked for help from the Office of the Attorney General because the CPUC was not being impartial in their handling of the San Onofre Investigation, ***since the CPUC ALJ never even allowed discovery to take place***, seeking instead, a secret settlement that would end the on-going investigation and covering up any SCE wrong doing! Now that Michael Aguirre's Team has appealed the case to Federal Court, we are beginning to see others also get involved since any change in the amount of any new settlement almost guarantees that there will be a big reduction in what ratepayers are required to pay. Kamala Harris will on one hand want to remain very friendly to the CA Political Leadership she is aligned with but at the same time if she does not stand up for ratepayers then she will be seen as being just another elected Politician that is Pro Big Utility, which is something that all those that run against her for the position of CA State Senate, can rightfully call her out on. If Kamala Harris now swiftly works to complete a fair and impartial investigation into this multi-billion dollar debacle without sheltering anyone, <b>which includes Politicians</b>, then she will be able to separate herself from those running against her since she will be seen as working for all the people of California and not just yet another Politician that is protecting BIG Business's interests in CA.

Former public utilities president's home searched

**Will this info be kept hidden from the public? *or* Will it be shared with the public that is the real question?** I suggest that if Attorney General Kamala Harris really wants to be seen as a credible candidate for CA Senator Boxer's seat then <b>she better stop avoiding the multi-billion dollar San Onofre debacle which now includes the one-sided Pro-Utility settlement by the CPUC and immediately pursue the investigation of Peevey's conduct and, if laws have been violated, to prosecute all those involved</b>. Otherwise she will be seen as just another Politician that is far more interested in her relationship with BIG Utilities than she is with California's voting ratepayers. With so many billions of dollars at stake, it is just a matter of time before the law firm Aguirre & Severson attracts enough public attention to insure that their appeal of the CPUC's unfair settlement gift to SCE and SDG&E gets its day in Federal Court. There the rule of law not the biased rules of the CPUC, will allow for *legal discovery* into what really went on during the replacement steam generator project. These documents will then spotlight SCE as being totally responsible for the engineering debacle at San Onofre, which will result in the ratepayers not having to pay many billions of dollars as proposed by the CPUC's unfair settlement gift to SCE and SDG&E. This case will also implicate not only Governor Brown who has turned a blind eye to the cozy relationship between the CPUC and the Big Utilities they regulate but also all of the CA's elected officials who have not demanded that ratepayers be treated fairly because they seek to continue retain their own cozy relationship with the Big Utilities. How many know, for example that Governor Brown's sister is on the board of Sempra which might very well explain why Gov. Brown has to date shown no interest in reforming the CPUC.
