    This is a classy and professional way to deal with this crisis. Sempra’s senior management and PR team are to be commended for their initial response. But the risk is if providing sexual favors to elected officials was a “given” from the higher ups, more than one head is going to roll.

    I think I want to be a legislator, too.

    “This is a classy and professional way to deal with this crisis.”

    BUNK – this is classic corporate double-speak.

    What the spokeswoman is actually saying is: “If you can’t PROVE that anything happened – then NOTHING happened.”

    I doubt that there is a “blue dress” in the hot lobbyist’s wardrobe.

    Classy and professional? Please I agree with Larry Man on September – a bunch of double speak. What did their investigation show? Has there been one more peep out of them? Am I still paying as part of my electric bill the costs for sending prostitutes to Sacramento? And what about the rest of the money they spend on lobbying – are these legitimate costs to go to the PUC with to inflict price increases on us the customer?

    Duvall has and will continue to pay for his stupidity and hopefully Jerry Brown pursues a criminal investigation but what about the other criminal activity here? What about Sempra Energy? What will happen to them? Anything?
