Here’s the press release from Progress NC:
Five Days Before Federal Grand Jury Hearing – “Come Clean McCrory!”
Campaign Finance Experts, Ratepayer Advocates and Conservationists to Call on Duke Energy and Gov. McCrory to Come Clean
Buncombe County residents will join campaign finance experts, ratepayers advocates and conservation groups for a press conference Thursday in Arden to call on Duke Energy and Gov. McCrory to come clean on coal ash.
The coalition makes three demands:
1) Clean up the water, starting with the Dan River;
2) Clean up ALL 37 toxic coal ash sites at no cost to the taxpayers or electricity ratepayers;
3) Gov. McCrory must come clean on his ties to Duke Energy.
Disclose communications between Duke employees and members of his administration.
Disclose political contributions from Duke Energy to his campaign and affiliated groups, such as Renew North Carolina.
Disclose the full value of Duke Energy stock that he or his family owns.
This press conference comes just five days before members of the McCrory Administration face a Federal Grand Jury Hearing in Raleigh. Federal prosecutors are investigating potential criminal corruption between the McCrory Administration and Duke Energy in the handling of citizen coal ash lawsuits.
