CPUC Employees Seek Investigation of Commissioner Timothy Simon (TLR Note: Isn’t Simon Married to Lateefah Simon ? Or, like Willie Brown / Sonya Molodetskaya in sinful concubinage ?)

Employees of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) have submitted a complaint to the Office of the Governor and the Fair Political Practices Commission, complaining of the “illegal and unethical” behavior of CPUC Commissioner Timothy Alan Simon.

The complaint attaches five news articles — my Reader columns of April 4 and April 24, Miriam Raftery’s East County Magazine article of April 8, and two news articles from the San Francisco Chronicle.

The complaint states that Simon’s longtime (10 years) fiance, Kimberly Brandon, is chair of the Museum of African Diaspora. At a San Francisco dinner, while Simon was away from the table, Brandon hit up a senior executive of San Diego Gas & Electric (SDGE) for a $25,000 donation to the museum — and in return, she said Simon would vote in favor of SDGE’s attempt to get San Diego customers to pay the uninsured costs of the 2007 fires, for which the utility was found negligent. San Diego attorney Mike Aguirre has mentioned this incident in his fight against the utility’s blatant attempt to have ratepayers, instead of shareholders of parent Sempra Energy, pay for the utility’s negligence — both for 2007 and for future fires. Simon is in fact the commissioner in charge of that case.

The complaint states that a California state auditor is investigating Simon allegedly billing the state for expenses of trips on behalf of third parties which had already paid for his expenses.Through this maneuver, Simon has been able to pocket significant sums, says the complaint, which notes that “Simon is addicted to travel — and to being entertained — as long as someone else is paying for it.”

Those filing the complaint said they could not use their names for fear of retaliation.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
