A man named Steven Spinner, who bundled together over $500,000 in donations for Barack Obama in 2008 and was rewarded with a cushy Energy Department gig…
…has been exposed for lobbying the White House on behalf of Solyndra despite the fact that his wife was working for the law firm representing the now-defunct company!
The White House was eager to approve an ill-advised loan to the solar energy company, in part due to Spinner’s prodding.
And after the Obama administration has so richly provided for him and his wife, campaign finance documents show Steven Spinner is again bundling over $500,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign!
This corrupt you-scratch-my-back-I’ll-scratch-yours attitude is what turned Washington into the cesspool it is, and it’s exactly the kind of corruption that Barack Obama ran against in 2008.
In addition to Spinner’s pay-for-play shenanigans at the expense of taxpayers, the executives of Solyndra TOOK THE FIFTH AMENDMENT WHEN TESTIFYING TO CONGRESS!
