The following link is an article in The Portland Phoenix by Jeff Inglis.

On the page there is a link to the full-length redacted (confidential and super confidential) Fairpoint testimony to the Maine PUC.

If you open the link and scroll down you will see blacked out confidential testimony. If you high-light it, copy it and paste it to a text editor like notepad or word. The black-out will go away and you can see the confidential testimony by Fairpoint executives to the Maine PUC.

Not a pretty picture...


In case you mis the second link here it is:

EXAMINER’S REPORT 1 Docket No. 200767 November 26,2007
In this Report, the Examiners recommend that the Commission reject the Joint Applicants’ 1 Petition for Approval. We find that, taken as a whole, the proposed Transaction subjects both ratepayers and shareholders to substantial risks and harms that are not outweighed by any of the potential benefits of the Transaction. We also recommend that the Commission specifically find that Verizon Maine has failed to meet its burden under 35A
M.R.S.A.§ 1104.

Is anyone up on this?

The PUC was dead set against it last month. Sounds like back room deals going on. How many State hacks are getting cushy positions out of this one?
