U.S. Congresswoman Kathy Castor dispatched a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland yesterday demanding a probe of Alabama Power’s alleged go-to political fixer, Matrix, the obscure political consulting firm engaged in alleged influence peddling and alleged criminal acts.
WINK News reports:
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., said in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday that recent press reports in Florida had “exposed apparent corruption, influence peddling and breaches of the public trust by Florida’s largest electric utility Florida Power & Light and its officers.”
“Numerous public corruption scandals involving electric utilities across the country have resulted in federal public corruption criminal and civil probes, and it appears that such oversight is needed in Florida now,” the letter said.
Her letter comes on the heels of our direct contact with federal investigators about Matrix’s alleged criminal misconduct involving 18 tax-exempt entities and over $50 million in money laundering.
Although Florida Power & Light has terminated their contracts with entities and individuals tied to the Matrix Meltdown, Alabama Power allegedly is STILL paying Matrix and Matrix founder “Sloppy Joe” Perkins over $2 million a year without the need for invoicing.
Although news reporting has been focused primarily on Florida, reliable sources tell us there are numerous investigative efforts now looking at Alabama and the Three Stooges (Alabama Power, Drummond, and Balch).
With ex-Matrix CEO “Jittery Jeff” Pitts’ deposition ready to open the filthy treasure chest of alleged dirty deeds wide open, the Congresswoman’s letter has caught the perfect wave.
