Skip to comments.Whistle-blower audio: Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband cut business deals in Senate Dining Room

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskills husband used the U.S. Senate Dining Room to cut business deals selling tax credits tied to stimulus money, a whistle-blowing executive inside his company alleged on an audio recording exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller
< snip >
He [McCaskills husband] did 4 projects these were rural development deals where he came in and stole from a guy and he did the federal credits and he got Enterprise Bank to invest in those four deals and those have been really iffy, Woods said on the tape.

Woods said those four projects housing developments were all here in Missouri. He explained how Shepard brokered deals with investors who counted on high returns in the form of federal and state tax credits that came with these projects. In return for the deals, Woods said, the investors gave Shepard cash he could use elsewhere in his business.
< snip >
Woods said one such project, in Clinton, Missouri, got $5.5 million in stimulus funds. They didnt have to borrow a dollar.
Woods said Shepard bundle[d] that stimulus-funded project with two other projects that didnt get stimulus money in Lees Summit, Missouri, and Hannibal, Missouri, and took the tax credits from all three to an investor in the Baltimore-DC area
< snip >
Does [Sen.] Claire [McCaskill] have an understanding of this?
Oh, hell yes, Woods responded. He [Shepard] doesnt do anything well, let me put it this way he doesnt do anything without Claire understanding it.
Sometimes he does it even if she says I dont want you to. .... But yeah, shes aware of everything he does.

Wow. I guess it must be October ;)
Great post..it needs to go viral in MO. Thanks Optimist:)
Haha. Akin is going to win this thing. Stick a fork in that rubber stamp, McCaskill.
See ya McCaskill.
Oops. Too late for the Donkeys to pull a Torricelli.
The bigger question is, did Harry Reid know about this deal? And will
he stonewall an ethics investigation? The Donkeys flung all kinds of crap at Speaker Hastert over Mark Foley. This is much worse. Payback & popcorn time.
Ouch... That’s gonna leave a mark.
I don’t care which party is in charge, nor which level of government is involved... If $5.5M is spent in Clinton, MO, corruption is front and center.
She bragged tonight in the debate that she never voted to increase her salary as a Senator.
Well you don’t have to when you and your husband have your hands in the taxpayers’ pockets and vote to keep them there.
As Akin’s new ad says: When her hand came off the Bible it went directly into the taxpayers’ pockets.
Put a fork in her — Claire’s goose is cooked.
yep! this should be headline news in MO papers.
This is awesome! Too bad the cowards RINO’s dropped any and all help for Akin. I hope he sticks to his guns and knows who his friends are when he wins!
Whoa... What Akin said months ago made me absolutely cringe, but I like that line about McCaskill... good one!
If enough voters hear about it she’s done!
Does Akin have enough money to do advertising?
I agree, katiedidit1! Thanks for this thread, Optimist.
