Trying to stifle Titan's progress due to possible Easley violations


A government watchdog is asking Governor Perdue to freeze the Titan permitting process. Former democratic consultant Joe Sinsheimer wrote a letter to Governor Perdue asking her to freeze Titan's permitting process for 90 days. Sinsheimer decided to write the letter after investigations into the Easley administration revealed possible violations in the environmental permitting process. “That's the question,” Sinsheimer said. “Have we gotten this far based on science, law and public policy or have we gotten this far in the permitting process because a whole group of political insiders wanted it to happen that way?” Former Governor Easley's new law firm represents the Titan subsidiary Carolinas Cement. If Titan is successful the Castle Hayne plant would be the fourth largest cement plant in the country.
