Why Wisconsin Electric Is Sending Workers NOW

There is no such thing as co-incidence.  You have noticed that around 60 skilled linemen from Wisconsin Electric are on their way to Puerto Rico, one of the 5 most corrupt nations in the Caribbean area.

There's a reason for that "now."

...On Saturday, a day after becoming aware of a massive store of rebuilding materials being held by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, the U.S. federal government — the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, along with their security detail — entered a Palo Seco warehouse owned by the public utility to claim and distribute the equipment, according to a spokesperson for the Corps....

...Among the materials recovered so far are “2,875 pieces of critical material to contractors” along with the sleeves of full-tension steel, a component of Puerto Rican electrical infrastructure required to erect new power lines. PREPA did not respond to The Intercept’s request for comment, though in a statement to the Associated Press, it rejected allegations that it had failed to distribute the warehouse’s contents. The AP only reported that “officials over the weekend also discovered some needed materials in a previously overlooked warehouse owned by Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority.” How they discovered them and how they were obtained is a story that has not been fully told....

FEMA and the Corps knew they would be re-possessing vast amounts of electrical-power materiel, likely "lost" by the Corrupt-o-crats of Puerto Rico.  By the way, lots of other mainland repair crews have been sitting in hotels waiting for this stuff to materialize.

FYI, Puerto Rico is not a "shithole."  Yet.
