(MDPT) -In this week's edition of the Laurel Leader, Prince George's Senator Jim Rosapepe (D-Dist. 21) continues to blame Enron for urging the passage of utility deregulation in Maryland, while advocating for re-regulation. The spin machine is cranked up.
In the letter to the editor, Rosapepe called the 1999 rate deregulation as disaster for working families and a boon for Constellation Energy. He also said that Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) "stood up" to the parent company of BGE and "forced them" to roll back $2 billion in overcharges.
This is not the first time my Senator has pulled this one out from nowhere. He originally came up with this one last year, when he wrote, basically the same thing in The Gazette. The current letter was also published in this weekend's edition of The Gazette as well.
Another politician, trying to re-write history. And so it goes...
