Corruption: The Obama administration promised a green energy future. What it delivered, though, is a present filled with rancid politics, aching failure and tawdry scandal.
At the top of the list is the Solyndra collapse. President Obama himself visited the California solar panel maker, lauding it for "leading the way toward a brighter, more prosperous future."

People should be prosecuted for this corruption. If the Republican candidate doesn’t talk about this every single day then they deserve to lose.
The Finance guy who lost all the MF GLOBAL money IS the Financial ADVISOR to the EPA.....connect the dots...
You mean Corzine? That explains it
Bradley I. Abelow, COO MF Global
No, it’s NOT Corzine...however, I believe he is a peer of his from Goldman Sachs....
Thanks...that’s the guy.
From the article
“current EPA Administrator Lisa Smith also previously served as then-Gov. Corzines chief of staff
It’s been going on for at least 8 years. Focus on the Congressional Committee ties.
Strangely, Obama has a 1.5 billion war chest for next year's election. Can't imagine where that kind of dough went. Or where it will inexplicably wind up.
Lisa Smith EQUALS Lisa Jackson????
Yes it is Jackson. I don’t know why they got that wrong.
