Stimulus fraud and corruption
When morality is driven from society it will be replaced by corruption. This how politicians get so rich working in Washington. And they are not about to let any filthy "bagger" change their system.
A company owned by the husband of Democratic senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina received taxpayer money for a green energy project through the federal stimulus of 2009, later revising down the project's estimated cost and keeping the difference.
Don Carrington at the Carolina Journal, a publication of the conservative John Locke Foundation, has the scoop on how JDC Manufacturing, co-owned by Chip Hagan kept savings from a stimulus grant instead of returning the money to taxpayers:
The company’s original application stated the total project would cost $438,627, and said JDC would contribute “leveraged funds” amounting to $187,983, or 43 percent of the total. As the project reached completion, however, JDC revised the total budget downward by $114,519 and applied all the savings to its share, keeping all the taxpayer funding.
Also, JDC’s decision to hire Solardyne/Green State Power, a separate company co-owned by Chip Hagan and the Hagans’ son Tilden, to install a portion of the stimulus-funded energy project at the JDC building appears to violate a conflict-of-interest provision that was included as part of the original application for the stimulus grant.
Read the whole thing here, which details how Hagan's company contributed a smaller investment in the project as originally outlined in its application for the federal grant. Kay Hagan voted for the stimulus bill that provided for the grant.
Re: Stimulus fraud and corruption
If the fork in the road that voters took in 2012 wasn`t the road of no return, this election is really the last chance to turn the car around. If Democrats aren`t too lazy to send in their absentee ballots and if hardworking Republicans don`t get off their combine and drive into town to vote, this really will be the "Wrong Turn".
