Mississippi Power Partners With Criminals On Lignite Coal Venture

Southern Company selects a troubled partner to unequally yoke to Mississippi Power’s Kemper County Coal Plant. HERE
Most prefer to choose honest moral business partners instead of criminals.
Kellogg Brown & Root LLC (KBR)
Four KBR Supervisors and five KBR executives and two KBR employees involved in massive “FRAUD” that “endangered the health of American soldiers even as it lined contractors’ pockets, records show.” HERE
KBR also “approved inflated bids” and accepted bribes; but don’t worry, none of those 13 people had been charged so perhaps they are available today to work with Mississippi Power on our Kemper Coal bids and contracts. Don’t you feel the trust?
“In the basement of one of KBR’s Houston office buildings, a 25-member team from the Defense Contract Audit Agency had “no communications” with “personnel on the ground,” so they could not confirm whether goods and services actually were delivered.”
Can anyone tell us who is overseeing the Kemper Coal Plant logistics and operations for Mississippi ratepayers? Mississippi ratepayers need an independent auditing agency with a trustworthy reputation to protect our interests. Our Public Service Commissioners have had previous problems accepting audits due to “lack of a complete and thorough fact-checking.” Surely our PSC aren’t using anyone affiliated with previous audit debacles and never use HORNE CPA again following the problems with the audits.
(Side Note) Has anyone noticed that HORNE CPA contributes a great deal to Republicans? HERE We hope that is not why they get the contracts. $10,400 to Steven Palazzo’s campaign. HERE Mississippi ratepayers hope Horne CPA is in no way involved in protecting the people of Mississippi from the actions of Criminals.
“Jackson accounting firm Horne LLP faces criticism for the second time in two months after a Feb. 18 audit by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General reported that the company billed Mississippi Emergency Management Agency an excessive amount of $7,751,445 for services that included paying employees up to $109 an hour to scan documents.” Here
