Troxler: PSC's Ryder Rudd is tip of iceberg



Howard Troxler: ...And yet, the tut-tutting in Tallahassee about this staffer — including one PSC member calling loudly for his head — is ironic and amusing.

Off and on over the past three decades, since the PSC became an appointed instead of elected body, we've had scandal after scandal. This one guy did not drink his mint juleps in a vacuum.

We've had PSC members going skiing with utility executives. PSC members having romances with utility employees. PSC members reading, word for word, opinions supplied to them by utilities.
