Insurance Commissioner Candidate Padilla Commends Tesla For Dropping Plans To Build At Downey – Call For Poizner To Pursue Criminal Fraud Charges Against Lichter

California Insurance Commissioner candidate Dina Padilla commended Tesla Electric Motors Inc. for it’s decision not to build a government subsidized electric car plant at the contaminated toxic dump site in Downey, California. “As you are aware Downey developer Stuart Lichter sued me for publicizing the ongoing health and safety problems of workers at the Downey Movie Studios and the Kaiser Downey Hospital.” “I think Tesla recognized that it would be doing a disservice to their own workers to build on a site where there is a continuing problem of illnesses caused by the failure of developer Stuart Lichter to properly clean up the site.”

Padilla also is demanding that “Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner pursue criminal insurance fraud charges against developer Stuart Lichter for seeking to limit illegally limit his insurance liability by shifting healthcare costs to other employers and the Federal government.”

This is also a sign that the Stuart Lichter IRG empire is in trouble. Lichter has been seeking to get out of Downey so he can do damage control for his cover-up of his failure to properly clean up the site. Injured workers continue to fight for their healthcare and benefits both at the Downey Studios and the Kaiser Downey Health complex.

Padilla also called for the new plant in Fremont at the joint venture with Toyota to hire union labor with wages and benefits comparable to UAW NUMMI workers. Tesla has received a $465 million Department of Energy Loan to assemble their electric cars and it requires that they pay prevailing wages of similar workers in the state. Although the UAW organized NUMMI plant has been shutdown, the workers should be rehired and paid similar wages and benefits with the full right to unionization.

“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
