PSC won’t investigate Commish Argenzianoby Dara Kam | October 20th, 2009
The Public Service Commission’s inspector general won’t investigate Commissioner Nancy Argenziano, turning down a request from a business group backing Florida Power & Light Co.’s proposed $1.3 billion rate hike.
PSC Inspector General Steven Stolting told Associated Industries of Florida lawyer Tamela Perdue in a letter that he won’t investigate allegations of impropriety and impartiality revealed in BlackBerry PIN messages exchanged between Argenziano and former aide Larry Harris.
AIF should file an ethics complaint instead, Stolting advised.
Stolting’s office is restricted to “conduct oversight activities within the Commission,” he wrote.
