Scandal!… Powerful Democrats Helped Chinese Firm Get Stimulus Cash For Wind Farm

In February 2010 it was reported that 80% of stimulus dollars for wind power went to foreign firms– including China. ABC reported that a Chinese company is helping build a massive wind farm in west Texas. The firm will receive $450 million in Stimulus cash. The project will save or create 300 jobs in Texas and 2,000 manufacturing jobs in China.
That sounds like a good use of taxpayer dollars, huh?

Apparently, the project is linked to Harry Reid.

Three weeks before Election Day, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., center, arrives for the dedication of a wind farm in Henderson, Nev., on Oct. 12, 2010. With him are, second from left, Kai Huang, deputy mayor of Shenyang, China; Jinxiang Lu, second from right, chairman and CEO of A-Power Energy Generation Systems, a Chinese company, and Tom Conway, right, international vice president of the United Steelworkers union. Reid’s support, and the plan to create jobs in Nevada, helped blunt congressional criticism that stimulus money was going to the Chinese company, which also plans a large wind farm in West Texas. The company is hoping to receive money through the U.S. Energy Department. (MSNBC)

Powerful Democrats, including Harry Reid, helped a Chinese firm get stimulus cash for a wind farm – a wind farm that his donors supported.
MSNBC reported:

Top Democratic fundraisers and lobbyists with links to the White House are behind a proposed wind farm in Texas that stands to get $450 million in stimulus money, even though a Chinese company would operate the farm and its turbines would be built in China.

The farm’s backers also have close ties with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who, at the height of his hard-fought re-election bid this fall, helped blunt congressional criticism over stimulus dollars possibly going to create jobs in China by endorsing a proposal by the Chinese company to build a factory in his home state. Although his campaign received thousands of dollars in donations from the wind farm’s backers and Reid stood on stage with them at a campaign event they hosted, his office declined to answer any questions about the wind farm’s organizers or their plans for Nevada.

Of course, this was after Democratic Senators promised in March to keep stimulus jobs in the US.

This should be a crime.

    China: You give us stimulus cash and move jobs here or we demand all owed money repaid immediately.

    Obama: Whatever, dudes. Just don’t make me look bad……… Somebody get me Harry Reid on the phone.

  • IOpian

    So we borrow the money from China, pay them 450 million for the windmills and when all is said and done we still owe them the original 450 million plus interest so Reid could have some money to get re-selected by the casino and mob bosses ?

    Industrial wind is THE biggest rip off of our tax dollars , wind turbines produce no meaningful electricity. Our political class has given the wind industry so many goodies that the turbines don’t have to even produce electricity to get subsidies and tax write offs.

  • Hedgehog

    What a deal! The Chinese get jobs that we are paying for by borrowing money from the Chinese, and we get the windmills that we have to subsidize with more money that we are borrowing from the Chinese. These Democommies sure know how to stimulate the economy.

  • trp

    And you right-wing haters say that the stimulus hasn’t created any jobs. I bet you’re embarassed now. Oh, don’t tell me: this isn’t good enough because the jobs are in China. Racists!
