Dina Padilla who is running for California Insurance Commissioner is calling for the prosecution and jailing of executives of PG&E for their personal responsibility for the deaths and destruction after the gas line explosion on September 9 in San Bruno, California. She spoke on 10/28/2010 about the blast and deaths and what needed to be done to stop these incidents in the future. These PG&E executives knew there were health and safety problems including leaking gas but did nothing to alleviate this dangerous situation. Instead they retaliated by firing of IBEW 1245 gas line worker Mike Wiseman who reported that the workers were not being properly trained to work on high pressure gas lines. This criminal malfeasance has been ignored by Democratic party candidate Dave Jones who says he wants to fight the insurance companies. He is also afraid to debate his political opponents in the election yet says he wants to fight the insurance industry. If you are afraid to debate this issues how are you going to fight the insurance industry?
The corporate control of the California Public Utility Commission and the US National Transportation Safety Board is a direct result of deregulation by the Democrats and Republicans and the corporate take-over of our government by these corporateers.
Upon taking office I will demand that the Attorney General of California begin the prosecution of the executives at PG&E and will work for the public operation of this out of control utility. Their deadly and dirty record of running PG&E make them ineligible to continue their ownership and control of this utility for the working people of California.
