THE GREEN SCANDAL: GROWING BIGGER STILL

Ken Berwitz

The more we find out, the worse this stinks.

Excerpted from Alexander Burns' blog at politico.com:

President Barack Obama will raise money in early October with a Missouri businessman whose company benefited from a $107 million federal tax credit to develop a wind power facility in his state.

 

Tom Carnahan, a scion of Missouris most prominent Democratic political family, is listed on Obamas campaign website as a host of a $25,000-per-person fundraiser to be held in St. Louis on October 4.

 

His investment firm, Wind Capital Group, was helped by a sizable credit authorized in the stimulus, for an energy project in northwest Missouri.

 

Republicans argue that its inappropriate for the Obama campaign to raise money from a donor who has benefited directly from the Recovery Act.

Sad to say, this is nothing new.  It is the same formula we have seen before.  Give a bunch of money to Obama & Co., get a much bigger bunch back from Mr. and Ms. Taxpayer - then pray they don't find out about it.

Well, this time we are finding out about it.  And even usually complicit media venues are reporting it. 

Maybe this administration could be more corrupt and more inept.  But it would take some explaining to convince me of how. In fact, corruption appears to be just about the only thing it does competently.

I count the seconds until the 2012 election.
