(Newser) – The Long Island Power Authority and ConEd don't just have frustrated customers to worry about—the state's attorney general has opened investigations into how they prepared for superstorm Sandy and handled its aftermath, reports the Wall Street Journal. Eric Schneiderman has subpoenaed records seeking details, a source tells the paper. LIPA in particular has come under heavy criticism, especially because it got many of the same complaints after last year's Hurricane Irene. Acting chief Michael Hervey announced he is resigning at the end of the year.

Always interesting when we hear, "Keep the government out of my life!" switch to, "I need help - where the hell is the government!"

Will this be the same investigations that came after Irene and Snowpocalypse? Or will it be a different one. This is just grandstanding for the media. The next storm will provide the exact same results because its far cheaper for the utilities to satisfy thier shareholders than it is to mollify some politicians w/ actual changes in how they do business.
