DPS refuses for mission-related reasons. AZ Corp Comm now asking Phoenix police expert to try to extract messages from Stump's phone - which is exactly what the Checks and Balances Project wanted in the first place. (Story from azcentral.com.)
Message to ACC: your future is to "twist slowly, twist slowly in the wind." Not just Stump, but all the Commission members and the staff and the reputation of this important regulatory body are doing that twist. Get out in front, open up the phone records, publish the financials, issue subpoenas, clear the air, and ditch Stump if need be. (At this point you don't need a big bus!) But get your credibility back.
