Solyndras CEO labeled President Barack Obamas administration The Bank of Washington.
Chris Gronet offered the description in an internal email one year before the company collapsed in 2010, costing taxpayers roughly $500 million.
The Bank of Washington continues to help us! he wrote in the October 2009 e-mail, which described several government programs and incentives.
The email bolsters GOP claims that Obamas support of green-tech companies amounted to crony capitalism.
Several White House officials had close ties to green-tech companies, and many green-tech executives have donated to Obamas political campaigns.

Romney: Gay couples raising kids is the American way
So, it is from this article?
N.H. woman challenges Romney on gay marriage
Thursday Jun 7, 2007
CONCORD, N.H. - A New Hampshire woman, frustrated with Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romneys opposition to gay marriage, made a point Wednesday of telling him about her personal experience.
“I am a gay woman and I have children. Your comment that you just made, it sort of invalidates my family,” said Cynthia Fish, a mother of a 6- and 8-year-old. “... I wish you could explain to me more, why if we are sending our troops over to fight for liberty and justice for all throughout this country, why not for me? Why not for my family?”
Romney paused, asked Fish about her children and then praised her.
“Wonderful,” Romney said. “Im delighted that you have a family and youre happy with your family. Thats the American way. ... People can live their lives as they choose and children can be a great source of joy, as you know. And I welcome that.”
But then Romney repeated his view of marriage.
“Marriage is an institution which is designed to bring a man and woman together to raise a child and that the ideal setting for society at large is where there is a male and a female are associated with the development and nurturing a child,” Romney said.
The former Massachusetts governor acknowledged other scenarios that raise children.
“There are other ways to raise kids thats fine: single moms, grandparents raising kids, gay couples raising kids. Thats the American way, to have people have their freedom of choice,” he said.
Unbelievable is right and I just found your ping late at night!
