ICYMI: America's Biggest Green Energy Con Artist Once Honored By Clinton Foundation Gets 2.5 Years In Prison
In honor of Earth Day tomorrow, let's look at a company that was once honored by the Clinton Global Initiative for its dedication to stopping global warming before it was discovered the leaders of the business were actually fleecing investors for more than $54 million in an elaborate Ponzi scheme. More recently earlier this month, one of the chief architects of this scam was sentenced 2.5 years in prison, five years parole, and must repay every dollar stolen from gullible financial backers.
Philadelphia Business Journal reported April 8 that "Amanda Knorr, 35, of Hellertown, Pa., received the prison sentence late Friday after pleading guilty to wire and securities fraud for what prosecutors have called the biggest scam involving clean energy in American history."
Knorr and her "business" as well as romantic partner, Troy Wragg, created a company called Mantria shortly after graduating from Temple University. The duo claimed to be selling "real estate and 'green energy' products, like biochar a form of charcoal produced by plant matter. Prosecutors said the biochar was never actually in production."

I think Terry McAuliffe scammed more for his fraudulent electric car company, and not one government person raised an eyebrow.
“The electric car company founded by former Gov. Terry McAuliffe who is prepping to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week, blaming negative coverage by a conservative news website.”
Maybe he went to the Solyndra Business College and got a degree in Obamanomics.
His brilliance is he's duping taxpayers, not individuals, with an unlimited amount of funds to scam.
Who do they think they are? Theranos?
So, another Elizabeth Holmes (Theranos) ‘wunderkind’.
She (Holmes) is still awaiting trial, BTW.
The clintons are always involved in crime. Will this be an episode or an entire season of the tv show “American Greed”?
