AZ Attorney General Seeks to OUST Corporation Commission Chair!!

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is seeking a court order to oust state Corporation Commissioner Chairwoman Susan Bitter Smith an elected official.  The AG says Smith being on the CC is a conflict of interest because she is a registered lobbyist and Executive Director of a cable communications trade group regulated by the Commission. Smith has not commented on the AG actions and the state’s Corporation Commission is refusing comment.  That body is made up of 5 elected PUBLIC SERVANTS.

Wow!  Talk about having all of the ends tied up!  Smith is not only a member of the CC but is also Chairwoman and she’s a lobbyist and Exec Director of a Cable trade group which must get CC approval for raising their rates to customers.  NOW I finally understand why the ARIZONA CORPORATION COMMISSION has been nothing more or less than a RUBBER STAMP for the corporations!  What a RACKET!!  But this is the way the Corporatist operate.
