The Enron trial turned to a subject that I feel gets no where enough attention: the manufactured California electricity crisis in 2000 and 2001. There is considerable evidence that Enron and other, mainly Texas based, energy companies manipulated the electricity supply in California with the goal of extracting billions of illegal profits from the people of that state. It is my belief that if a thorough investigation were to take place that we would learn that Dick Cheney's secret meeting with energy execs is a secret precisely because it dealt with the California issue. By the way, the Bush administration has largely protected these companies from anti-trust prosecution demanded by the State of California.
Also, the electricity crisis was a major contributing factor in the recall of Democratic Governor Grey Davis and his replacement by Populist/Republican Schwarzenegger.
This is the biggest energy related scandal since Tea Pot Dome and we'll never know about it unless the Democrats win at least one house of Congress this fall! Vote Democrat!!!
