Kean praises probe of BPU

State Sen. Tom Kean, Jr., the GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, says that the U.S. Attorney’s investigation into the state Board of Public Utilities’ Clean Energy program “should be welcomed by anyone who is interested in getting to the truth of this growing scandal and restoring New Jersey to a higher standard of ethical conduct.” “The Governor should direct the BPU to cooperate and ensure that the stonewalling that occurred with the Treasury audit is not repeated again.” Kean says that the BPU program is “rife with ethical problems that may well rise to the level of criminal conduct.” The BPU President, Jeanne Fox, is married to Steve DeMicco, who is managing the campaign of Kean’s opponent, Senator Robert Menendez.
