The founder of an energy company that benefited from deals involving hundreds of millions in stimulus money made the maximum donation allowable to President Obamas inauguration, WND has learned.
Peter L. Corsell, founder of GridPoint Inc., contributed $50,000 to the inauguration.
Corsell served as the Gridpoints chief executive officer from the companys inception until transitioning to the position of non-executive chairman in October, 2010.
Yesterday, KleinOnline broke the story that an Obama adviser who played a key role in developing the energy provisions of the so-called stimulus bill serves on the boards of Gridpoint as well as several other companies that recently received government funds, including stimulus money.
TJ Glauthier served on Obamas 2008 White House Transition Team. He is widely credited with helping to craft the energy provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, also known as the stimulus.

If you want to get the breaking scoop on OWS (Occupy Wall Street ) and other great stories there are several options available for you.
give away a trillion of OPM and you could too get a billion back in donations....
biggest theft in world history, IMO
Damned thieves stealing our money, all of them. That’s what they are!
They should ALL be in jail. Instead, they’re looting the country!
Some congressional hearings might be fitting at this time in this apparently uber corrupt administration.
The Change that Obama & Company believe is comes from the taxpayers’ pockets.
Yeah, Boehner will get right on that....just as soon as Zero's safely out of office.
The problem is they are all in on it....
I think Darrell Issa is up to the task.
ain’t much change left in dem pockets either
right... he’ll leave doing anything about it to the White House though
And how is the Blagojevich “Pay to Play” really different from this?
At this point this headline and story are almost a Mad Lib. You can rerun the same story again and again: Just change the name of the corporation, the number of millions given to it, and the name of the wealthy Obama donor pocketing the cash.
In my opinion, donors should be automatically ineligible for ('recused' from) government grants and other funding.

That is only addressing one half of the problem. Many times donors expect tax credits and favorable regulation with carve-outs for them. Some donors expect to see government crush competitors like the government did to Gibson guitars.
The swamp is much deeper and broader than anyone can imagine.
That’s why I don’t think it’s fair he got 14 dang years in prison when the higher ups get away with such corruption scot free!
We need someone to do a summary story with a table showing all the known examples.
-——showing all the known examples.——
That would be list of those to be brought to justice by one means or another.
So, crime DOES pay!
The states need to unite and destroy the renegade central government who destroy all Americans lives and economy.
With 64 million Americans armed and many with US military or police experience, it would be very, very hard to stop and eventually the patriotic US military would side with The People and the Constitution in such an historic scenario, if push really came to shove. Just let them try it, they, our know -it- all overlords, are truly going to regret attempting to yoke the American People into socialist beasts of burden, I’ll tell ya what. The bitter “clingers” will not go out without one hell of a fight, take that to the bank.
America needs an “Occupy 1600 Pennsylvannia Avenue” movement. The American people need to take back their house.
Another day in Obamaland.
Can you believe 40% of the population will re-vote for this guy? :(:(:(:(:(
Perhaps the recusal should be for any favor or funding from the government. A donation and a favor within 4 years of the donation should form a prima facie case of bribery.
