OHIO: BIG MONEY, NUCLEAR SUBSIDIES, AND SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION

On 12 February, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists carried an article saying that the “largest bribery, money laundering scheme ever perpetrated against the people and the state of Ohio” came to light during an unexpected press conference in July 2020.  It is said that the conspiracy was to pass and maintain a $1.5 billion bailout in return for $61 million in dark money – involving an intricate web of alleged illegal activities used to launder money.  It says that Ohio is not alone in its nuclear energy corruption.  3 other states — New Jersey, Connecticut, and New York — have implemented similar subsidies to Ohio (although, to date, no allegations of wrongdoing related to them have been made public).  Detailing how the subsidies etc in the US work, the article says that what is illustrates are merely examples of the apparent systemic corruption that seems to permeate the nuclear industry.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
