Howie Hawkins Statement on Percoco Sentencing
Joe Percoco’s 6-year sentence is deserved. Unfortunately, his briber, Peter Galbraith Kelly Jr., former treasurer and finance director of the national Democratic Party, can only get a maximum of 5 years when he is sentenced next week. The biggest crime here – which can still be stopped by the governor – is permitting the Competitive Power Ventures plant. Getting CPV permitted by state government is what the bribery was for. If CPV goes online, the 10% addition to the state’s total greenhouse gas emissions is a climate crime in which we will all be victims.
