Flak for State Utility Regulator Gets Grabby With Reporter

OK, so it's not nearly as goofy as the WPLG video I mentioned in the Morning Juice, but this one has a better backstory. Cynthia Muir, a spokeswoman for the Public Services Commission, is already in hot water over sharing BlackBerry PINs with an FPL lobbyist -- one of the reports being looked at in a Florida Attorney General investigation of the ties between the utility and the governor-appointed commission that regulates it.

As you can see above, you can add manhandling a reporter and photographer to Muir's recent disgrace. She is paid to, among other things, provide reporters with access and information. Looks like she's doing a bang-up job. [hat tip: Buzz]
