Editor’s Note:
This chart above and text below are from attorneys Mike Aguirre and Mia Severson,
who’re representing low income ratepayers against Southern CA Edison’s
plan to demand $5 Billion from their customers for
their stupid mistakes with San Onofre nuclear power plant.

The CPUC colluded with Southern California Edison (SCE) in this. This case has much of the same
pattern as with the CPUC and ‘smart’ meters, as well as with PG&E and Diablo
Canyon, the remaining nuclear power plant in CA – our own potential Fukushima.

What Is A Cover-Up
A cover-up is an attempt to conceal evidence of wrongdoing. In a passive cover-up information is simply not provided; in an active cover-up deception is used.

The expression is usually applied to people in positions of authority who abuse their power to deflect guilt of wrongdoing. Those who initiate a cover up (or their allies) may be responsible for a crime.

While the terms are often used interchangeably, cover-up involves withholding incriminatory evidence, while whitewash involves releasing misleading evidence. https://self.gutenberg.org/articles/cover-up

Are Those Listed Above Engaged in a $5.2 Million cover-up of an unlawful scheme to Make Edison customers to pay $5B for closed San Onofre plant? Are they getting help from the Governor’s office? Who is Nancy McFadden?

Who is Nancy McFadden?
Nancy McFadden was the Senior Vice President and Senior Advisor to the Chairman and CEO of PG&E Corporation, and before that was the Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company. She received $1 million from PG&E before joining Brown’s staff. She now serves as the Executive Secretary to California Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. [ see: Indispensable insider looks out for Gov. Jerry Brown’s interests – “Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s chief aide was Susan Kennedy, so influential that many viewed her as the de facto governor. Nobody says that about McFadden, a lawyer who is more broker than coach for a governor with decades of policy experience.” ]
