One Million Dollar Sempra Pay Out To Gov's Sister Kathleen Brown Is Worth Discussing

Participating in a press conference yesterday in downtown LA, I watched as Jane Fowler faced the TV cameras and teared up over the re-opening of Sempra’s giant Aliso Canyon gas reserve next door to where she lives.
