Excerpt from The Arizona Republic (8/13/15): “How utterly fitting. Corporation Commissioner wants to limit public’s access to public’s business”

For months, the Checks and Balances Project has been trying to get a look at Commissioner Bob Stump’s text messages sent on his commission-supplied phone during the 2014 campaign season. Specifically, it’s interested in what Stump was talking about in his multiple exchanges with an APS official, the head of a dark-money group believed to be tied to APS and a couple of commission candidates elected with the help of that dark-money group.

It would seem that Mr. Burns doesn’t think the public has any right to get a glimpse into just how cozy (or not) APS has become with the commission that supposedly regulates it.
