Argenziano blasts Legislature for being corruptible and influenced by cash



Stung by the Public Service Nominating Council when it refused to interview her for reappointment to her job, PSC Chairwoman Nancy Argenziano fired off a blistering statement that accuses the Legislature for being "corrupt and corruptible'' and that "money talks in Tallahassee.''

"I take some pride in having leveled the playing field, consistent with the law, so that the ratepayer, with no protection other than the integrity of five commissioners, could compete with the monopolies ..." she said. "That this should have cost me my job, given the decrepitude of the Legislature, was a foregone conclusion."
