Thursday’s story by Rocky Barker in the DAILY PAPER about an alleged scam involving the SEC investigation of Alternative Energy’s proposed nuclear power plant near Payette didn’t really surprise us.
The GUARDIAN, along with readers and writer Jo Kirkpatrick warned folks of the “smooth operator” in this NUKE STORY. Our hat is off to the Snake River Alliance, the Securities Exchange Commission Investigators, and the Idaho Finance investigators on this one. Looks like fission fizzled.
Just like some of the local government efforts of late, it appears this deal was based on massive public relations and press release campaigns rather than substance. One of the flaks has already fallen victim to his own prose, jumped ship and is now stuck with what he professes to be worthless stock. It is just a matter of time before the other former newsies see the light and leave Alternative Energy as well.
