Newsweek is out with a scathing story that accuses Kentucky’s two conservative senators of a scheme to stick the Bonneville Power Administration – and hence Northwest electricity customers – with an unnecessarily large bill for a product it didn’t need. The magazine reports Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul required the BPA to pay $700 million for uranium fuel – even though it had no need for the uranium. The net effect was to needlessly drain money from people and companies in the Northwest, and to prop up businesses in Kentucky. It’s a remarkable story.
