FPL proceedings described as "infected"

Miami City Attorney, Victoria Mendez sent out a Memo regarding the "Status of FPL Turkey Point Units 6 & 7 to the Mayor and City Commissioners.

The memo updates the litigation surrounding the project application. FPL applied to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to construct and operate two new nuclear generating units at Turkey Point as well as miles of oversized transmission lines. 

The memo goes on to say: "As noted in previous memoranda, the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) assigned to the case issued a Recommended Order -- consisting of over 800 pages, including attachments -- that rubber stamped FPL's Application and denied due process to the City of Miami. The matter then went before the Governor and the Cabinet sitting as the Electrical Power Plant Siting Board, and DEP on May 13, 2014

"While the Siting Board approved the Application with little comment -- and deferred to FPL and the ALJ on almost every issue presented -- the City of Miami, coordinating with other local governments, secured a critical concession from DEP. FPL cannot begin construction of the transmission lines running through Miami until the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approves the two nuclear generating units. The NRC has indicated that it will not grant this approval until February 2016 at the earliest."

"In the interim, I plan to appeal the Siting Board's decision to challenge both the due process errors suffered by the City and the mistaken conclusions of law that have infected this entire proceeding."

It was signed by
Victoria Mendez
City Attorney

The proceedings were NOT infected by due process errors and mistaken conclusions of law. They were infected by corruption, corrupt politicians, and indirect bribery. We need to get this crook out of the governor's office immediately. A liar, a fraud, and a con-man. It would almost have been surprising if he hadn't been elected.

Why didn't Sarnoff fly to Tallahassee with the City Attorney? It appears Sarnoff sided with FPL.

Corporate campaign money must be taken out of politics. It must go back to one man one vote to restore democracy.
