Letter to the Editor

Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger might be a very expensive governor for California. Although he claims he can’t remember it – documents have surfaced confirming that he attended a high level meeting with Ken Lay of Enron fame and several other oil execs and high powered Republicans regarding the artificially created energy crisis that shut off electricity to California in the spring of 2001.

California is trying to get back 9 billion dollars in overcharges from the very energy companies that were in Arnold’s group. I believe if he were selected for governor that these oil execs would get a 9 billion dollar windfall at the expense of the California rate payers.

The new documents come at an unfortunate time for the candidate amid allegations of sexual misconduct and praising Adolf Hitler. I would urge California voters to think before you vote because after the election is over – we will have to live with the reality of the results. Movie stars are interesting on the screen – but reality is more important.


Side note:

I was on the CBS Evening News last night for those who want to see the face behind these emails. The interview was about my MCI Sucks page I created a few years back when MCI cut off my phone lines. I give good interviews:
