So, what's up with that Power to Energy name switch anyhow? I know Bill chuckles every time he types Power... err Energy.
Back last spring, when these "reliable power" guys were first exposed as the scam they are, it was discovered that none of these "coalitions" were legal entities. In fact, according to "state coordinator" of West Virginians for Reliable Power (at that time), Bryan Brown, they were "just using that name". Well, at least that statement was the truth (Bryan is a terrible liar, btw) because while Bryan was uttering it, sitting in my pocket was a WV Secretary of State's Office Business Registration Certificate for the name West Virginians for Reliable Power with my name on it. Best $15 bucks I ever spent!
When Bryan continued to "just use" my business name and attempted to get media coverage for his "events", it turned out that the news outlets weren't very happy to oblige him when he was illegally using a corporate name that legally belonged to someone else. That's when Bryan changed his "coalition's" name and began "just using" West Virginians for Reliable Energy.
Turns out I "just wasn't able to get my corporate registration papers together before the expiration date" and I let the registration expire at the end of August.
Oh, but wait... Bryan came along a month later and bought up a very similar name, the very melodious-sounding West Virginians for Reliable Power, VA. Just to hedge his bets (because Bryan is such a smart and careful guy) in case someone would come along and buy the very catchy West Virginians for Reliable Energy, VA. out from under him, he reserved that one too. Seems like Bryan is also having a difficult time getting his corporate registration papers together just like I did. Uh-huh, Bryan ;-) Looks like Bryan is about to have his registration expire in February. Gee, I wonder if someone is going to swoop in and buy it out from under him and rename it something incredibly lyrical like West Virginians for Reliable Power, XYZPDQ.?
You know, if I couldn't have fun like this, life would really be boring! Thanks, PATH, for filling my days with non-stop entertainment! What would I ever do without you? Group hug?
