Troxler: 'The Florida Legislature doesn't care what anybody thinks'
Such a housecleaning is unprecedented in the three decades since the PSC switched from an elected body. It is proof of two things:
(1) The Florida Legislature absolutely does not care or fear what anybody thinks.
(2) The electric industry, and in particular Florida Power & Light of Miami, is able to take out any commissioner that it chooses.
To quote Michael Corleone in Godfather II: "If history has taught us anything, it's that you can kill anybody." I even admit a certain admiration for FP&L and its alter-ego henchman, Associated Industries of Florida.
