Kevin McIntyre, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) missed his second consecutive monthly FERC board meeting yesterday. McIntyre disclosed in March that he was diagnosed in summer 2017 with a brain tumor, but that it had been found early and successfully treated. When McIntyre missed last month’s FERC meeting due to “health issues,” tongues started to wag. Now that he’s missed a second meeting, “sources” in the swamp are saying he could potentially step down–soon. McIntyre’s chief of staff said his boss will issue a statement “in the coming days.” It certainly looks as if McIntyre will be leaving, which we find very sad.
