Watchdog Groups Send Request for Independent Investigation of IURC/Duke Ethics Scandal to U.S. Attorney

Common Cause/Indiana and the Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana today sent a letter to Joe Hogsett, the United States Attorney for Indiana’s Southern District requesting his office immediately begin an investigation into official misconduct by members and staff of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and Duke Energy.  

Both organizations have called for such an investigation in verbal statements but hope that a written request will provide an impetus for the U.S. Attorney to proceed.
