Arnold Unplugged - It's hasta la vista to $9 billion if the Governator is selected
The New Puppet
For those of you who are considering voting for Arnold Schwarzenegger next Tuesday, consider this:
Gray Davis is trying to get the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to force Enron and the other power companies to give back to California the $9 billion dollars they sucked out of the state during the energy crisis. And Cruz Bustamante is the plantiff in a lawsuit against Enron for the same debacle. Also for $9 billion dollars.
In May of 2001, one month after Bustamante's suit was introduced into the courts, Arnold had a meeting with Ken Lay, the CEO of Enron, here in Los Angeles.
Did I mention that next year's budget shortfall in California is expected to be about $8 billion dollars?
So, since the governor & the lt. governor are the the guys making all the noise about the energy crisis, Bush's people at FERC are pushing for an out-of-court settlement for roughly a 3rd of the money they stole from the state.
Gray Davis won't go for it. Suddenly, there's a campaign to recall Davis.
Cruz Bustamante won't go for it. Suddenly, Bustamante is being smeared for taking money from Native Americans.
But everyone who's at least read this far has to know that Arnold is going to go for it, hook line and sinker. They make him governor, he OK's the theft of $9 billion dollars from the State of California.
PLEASE read this article by Greg Palast.
And then, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE vote NO on the Recall.
