What does Twinkle Cavanaugh mean when she says she returned money to consumers because of Trump’s tax cuts?

Primary silly season is upon us and candidates are putting ads out attacking each other and touting their own accomplishments, some times the items they choose are fair, some times they are silly. Twinkle Cavanaugh is President of the Public Service Commission and she is running ads where she touts her record, this includes a claim that she returned money to consumers:

Under her leadership the Public Service Commission is returning more than $300 million dollars to Alabama Power customers over the next two years.”

Here is her ad:

Radio ads tout the Trump tax cuts and talk about how she lived up to her promises and that she “ordered” utility companies to return that money.

The problem with this claim is that she didn’t actually do anything to make that happen.

This narrative is mostly garbage. $257 million returned to customers from Alabama Power as a result of the Trump tax cuts required, as al.com put it, “[t]he cut requires no action by the PSC”.

It’s one thing to make false and ridiculous accusations against your opponent, it is another to lie to voters about your own “accomplishments”.

The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

1. At 8PM this evening President Donald Trump will reshape the court for a generation, Alabama Senator Doug Jones finally says something 

— Trump has made it clear he has a list of individuals from his campaign that he will choose from, the media and Democrats will deem whoever that person is will be the most extreme and unqualified choice ever.

— Sen. Jones, who has been silent on the issue for weeks, really said nothing when he told CNN, “I’m open to voting ‘Yes'”, but also “I’m open to voting ‘No.’

2. Mueller will not offer collusion evidence in Manafort trial, Americans starting not to care

— In a court filing Friday, Mueller announced that the government “does not intend to present at trial evidence or argument concerning collusion with the Russian government”.

CNN frets that Jeopardy contestants don’t know about the investigation, Trump’s questioning of the probe, and the lack of fruit, is having an impact.

3. Senator Richard Shelby visited Moscow last week, media lied but the truth has come out

— This trip was organized by Shelby, and in his statement he released the goals saying, “During a time of heightened tensions between Russia and the United States, I led a congressional delegation, the largest in many years, to Russia to meet with key leaders of the Russian government. Our goal was to have a sober assessment of our differences and to put the unvarnished truth on the table.”

— The trip consisted of lawmakers bringing up the 2016 election to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and sanctions because of Crimea, much to the media’s chagrin.

4. North Korea slams Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, he remains optimistic

— According to the North Koreans, Pompeo’s “gangster-like” demands that they denuclearize are an insult in spite of the fact that this is the entire reason for the negotiations in the first place.

— Pompeo argued that the talks are going fine and said, “the fact that we are cooperating — and not fighting — is proof that when a country decides to create a brighter future for itself alongside the United States, we follow through on American promises”

5. More confrontations this weekend, Senate Majority Leader and Steve Bannon are all harassed in public, while another Congressman’s supporters are threatened

— After an assault on a 16-year-old Trump supporter last week, 3 other high-profile confrontations took place over the weekend proving that this will not be a short-lived phenomenon.

— The most troubling confrontation involved a Long Island. New York man showing up at Rep. Lee Zeldin’s office and threatening the life of supporters of the Representative and President Trump before almost running over a staffer.

6. Twinkle Cavanaugh’s attacks Rep. Will Ainsworth over college prank and a boating citation in a nasty Lieutenant Governor’s race

— Ainsworth participated in what he calls a “stupid prank” that included stealing tiger statues on Auburn’s campus, he received community service, and the other arrest was actually a boating ticket which is technically an arrest as all traffic tickets are as well.

— Cavanaugh’s attempt to cast this as a sign of criminal behavior almost two decades later is an insult to the intelligence of Alabama voters.

7. Racist idiots arrested for racist and idiotic video, did not break any laws

— Chris Tidmore and his friend Ronny recorded and posted a video online declaring that they were ready to shoot black people in North Alabama, they then went to the police when they said they started receiving death threats.

— Fortunately, for these guys, being a stupid racist is not illegal, they have been released from custody after being identified and detained.
