WINDFALL PROFITS… Obama Supporter Who Was Awarded $107 Million For Windfarm Will Hold $25,000-Per-Person Fundraiser for President

Tom Carnahan, brother of Robin and Russ Carnahan, was gifted with $107 million in stimulus money for his wind farm project in Missouri.

The Carnahans got a windfall in stimulus dollars. We got the bill.

This coming week Tom Carnahan will host a $25,000-per-person fundraiser for President Obama.
It pays to go green.
The Politico reported:

President Barack Obama will raise money in early October with a Missouri businessman whose company benefited from a $107 million federal tax credit to develop a wind power facility in his state.

Tom Carnahan, a scion of Missouri’s most prominent Democratic political family, is listed on Obama’s campaign website as a host of a $25,000-per-person fundraiser to be held in St. Louis on October 4.

His energy development firm, Wind Capital Group, was helped by a sizable credit authorized in the stimulus, for an energy project in northwest Missouri.

Republicans argue that it’s inappropriate for the Obama campaign to raise money from a donor who has benefited directly from the Recovery Act.

Missouri Republican Party executive director Lloyd Smith compared the situation to the Solyndra affair, in which the Obama administration reportedly rushed federal support to a green-energy firm that subsequently collapsed.

“At a time when Barack Obama is under fire for steering hundreds of millions of dollars in stimulus funds to a failed company linked to a major campaign donor, it is stunning that he would come to Missouri and raise money with another recipient of stimulus cash,” Smith said in a statement to POLITICO. “Sadly, Missourians have come to expect this kind of pay-to-play from the Obama administration. November 2012 can’t come soon enough.”

The Obama campaign did not respond to a request for comment. There’s no evidence that Carnahan’s company received federal help because of political favoritism, and given the size of the stimulus, there are more than a few business executives who can be tied to the Recovery Act.

    more crony socialism. this guy didn’t have to compete in the marketplace for that money. all he had to do was agree to spend some of it for political activities and he got a ton of the taxpayers hard-earned income. keep letting them raise your taxes, this is the kind of service your going to get for it. its like having a monopoly.

    Youtube is loaded with windmill crash videos. It hasn’t made the news but these windmills are a DISASTER. They sit idle most days without enough wind to turn the blades….and when a strong wind finally comes you get this …>>>>…

    The whole things stinks on ice. The figures are amazing as money flows like water. 25,000 dollars a plate. Are these the Billionaires and Millionaires Obama is talking about in his Job Act?

    (there are more than a few business executives who can be tied to the Recovery Act.)
    Now, Republicans do need to investigate who received our green for green and I for one want to know just how successful OUR new business is.

    In one week or it seems Obama sends down Buffet Rule, while Obama is losing OUR money and then Friends with Benefits hold a fundraisers for Obama with Millionaire and Billionaires, would have to be for 25,000 dollar a plate.

    Christie is reconsidering a Run for President Announcement in a few days.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    There’s no evidence that Carnahan’s company received federal help because of political favoritism,…

    Ha ha ha.

    As the old saying goes, “The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but that’s the way to bet.”

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    the left like to claim that the businessmen are corrupt, but the truth is the politicans have corrupted the businessmen. we let it happen by letting the politicans confiscate our income.

    Christie is not, Newsmax news is old …see HotAir updates. ..

    Claim: Christie Reconsidering Entering Presidential Race. Will decide in days.

    Two weeks….hmmm last time it was suspected that Sarah Palin was going to enter the race rummors were flying that Christie might get in. Sooooooo here we go again!

    btw…is anyone going to start screaming that it is to late? Maybe the Bilderberg Perry is pooping out they have to put the muslim loving Christie in!

  • Cee

    Just because you can do something does not mean that you should. This falls into that category. It looks like payback. Are Obama’s campaign chairmen so stupid that they would deliberately add fuel to the fire? It sure looks like it – or they think the voters are so clueless that we won’t notice or care.

  • Sally T.

    No evidence of political favoritism for Carnahan’s fedl $$$. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Hilarious.

    I’m starting to think that ALL of the green projects the feds supported are examples of political favoritism.

    H.R. 1125….No Co-sponsers
