I had to do a double take when I saw this mini-editorial posted on the Sun website:
The Maryland Public Service Commission‘s order Thursday concluding that it has the right to review Electricite de France’s proposed purchase of part of Constellation Energy Group’s nuclear business looks like nothing more than an attempt by the state to shake down the company for cash. That wouldn’t be so bad, except that the state already shook Constellation down 18 months ago with the promise that it wouldn’t do so again. But it seems that when it comes to Constellation and BGE, Gov. Martin O’Malley and his appointees on the Public Service Commission don’t know when to leave well enough alone.
Read the whole thing.
If I were in the O’Malley Administration (and, since I have common sense, I’m obviously disqualified there) and the Sun editorial board (who has been at the vanguard of the “stick it to Constellation” movement) started question questioning my appointees decisions as overreaching, maybe I’d start wondering if they were right.….
