Here’s a news flash that’s probably causing a lot of sleepless nights among Governor Brown’s inner circle: The central figure in the PUC corruption scandal, PG&E lobbyist Brian Cherry, is now a witness for the US government, in the case against PG&E over the San Bruno explosion.
Before the federal case against PG&E over San Bruno was delayed, the witness list turned over by the Justice Department included Cherry as one of its own witnesses.

Examples mentioned, never followed up. Questions dangled, but never asked. And no one knows, still, where the money went. That's a short summary of Wednesay's relatively easy confirmation of Michael Picker, president of the California Public Utilities Commission.

Stonewalling legislators when you have to be confirmed by their colleagues is usually not a good idea but that is the approach Michael Picker, president of the California Public Utilities Commission, appears to be taking.
