Is federal money funding Obama campaign?

As I was reading about the Solyndra kerfuffle, I wondered how much the company and its various executives, whose incomes derive(d) in large part from the generous federal loan for which Obama administration officials lobbied, donated to various Democratic organizations and candidates.

Yesterday, Jim Hoft reported that one recipient of federal stimulus money seems to be funneling his windfall back into the Democrat’s campaign coffers:

Tom Carnahan, brother of Robin and Russ Carnahan, was gifted with $107 million in stimulus money for his wind farm project in Missouri.

This coming week Tom Carnahan will host a $25,000-per-person fundraiser for President Obama.

Read the whole thing. Seems those interested in “accountability journalism” might want to look into this matter.

Do wonder if any “mainstream” news outlets (beyond Politico) will investigate this story and study the extent to which various outfits who support Democratic causes and candidates were more likely to receive federal funds — and whether their donations to Democrats increased after they received such monies.

  1. This is the same “money laundering” scheme as the democrats passing municiple union contracts the tax payers can’t afford and the unions giving democrats millions in campaign funds.

  2. Do you mean will the WH stenographers investigate the criminal enterprise that keeps them in business? That would be racist.

  3. It’s Obama’s culture of corruption. The MSM will ignore it until they can’t any longer.

  6. The amount of blatant, obvious, disgusting, corruption, now available for all to see is stunning.
    There is so much of it….how do you focus on just one prosecution?

  7. First it was “Fast and Furious” stone-walling, then the Solyandra scandal, and now the GPS interfering George Soros-stalking horse LightSquared. Now GM is transferring to the Chinese US taxpayer-funded electric vehicle technology.

    There’s Hope and Change you can believe in.

  8. These are rhetorical questions, right? We all know there is as much chance of the MSM looking at the corruption cycle as there is of a left wong blogger reporting that the ass booing was shouted down or reporting at all on the Gunwalker scandal.
