When asked to elaborate on the companies failure, the CEO & CFO of Solyndra ( a California based solar panel technology company) got a lot of mileage out of their “I plead the 5th” pie hole dribble…
And more speech practice
Under the last president, Solyndra couldn’t get the funding they wanted. George W denied the DOE funds to Solyndra, a couple months after taking office, spring of 2009, B. H. Obama grants the funding. Two years later Solyndra is facing bankruptcy and refusing to answer questions. I understand investigations into campaign contributions are under way.
Here’s another good one. Jonathan Silver was named Executive Director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office in November 2009. He can’t say who made the decision to lend Solyndra $535,000,000.
Oh BTW… feel good in the aspect that Solyndra only burned through $527,000,000 so far ;(
