Update: Newspaper Never Asked to Change Story on Whitehouse and Deepwater

Monday, May 03, 2010

 

The Providence Business News was never asked to a change a Nov. 18, 2009 story that said U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse's wife, Dr. Sandra Whitehouse, had been hired by Deepwater Wind as an "independent permitting consultant" that same month, according to Mark Murphy, the editor. "Not as far as I know, because we would have made a change," Murphy told GoLocalProv in an interview this afternoon. "Certainly no one called me."

Today, GoLocalProv reported that the hiring came just less than three weeks after Sen. Whitehouse signed an Oct. 23, 2009 letter urging the U.S. Department of Transportation to approve a $22.3 million grant for infrastructure improvements to the Quonset Business Park. The improvements would have benefitted Deepwater Wind.

Today, Sen. Whitehouse told WPRO News Talk 630 that the GoLocalProv report was "a mystery" and claimed that his wife had not worked for the company and "never got a dime from them."
