Top executives at FirstEnergy rank among the Bush campaign's top fundraisers. FirstEnergy President Anthony Alexander was a Bush Pioneer in 2000 - meaning he raised at least 0,000 - and then served on the Energy Department transition team. H. Peter Burg, the company's CEO and chairman of the board, hosted a June event that raised more than half a million dollars for Bush-Cheney '04.
Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, discussing the administration's plans for addressing the blackout, told CBS's Face the Nation that consumers should be responsible for paying the billion he claims is needed to upgrade the transmission system. Abraham added: "Rate-payers, obviously, will pay the bill because they're the ones who benefit."
