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.
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.
