Skip to comments.Busted: DOE Altered Solyndra-Related Documents
Posted on 10/19/2011 3:03:03 PM PDT by Nachum
It appears as though the Obama administration has been caught red-handed trying to cover up evidence in relation to the green loans programs that helped finance Solyndra. CNBC reports that a number of press releases posted by the Department of Energy have been retroactively altered to remove the name a solar company thought by many to be the next green failure:
The changes occurred in two press releases from the Department of Energys loan guarantee program the same program that has been the center of controversy surrounding the failed solar company Solyndra.
Both were changed to remove the name of a company that has received negative press attention in recent days, SunPower, and replace it with the name of another company, NRG Energy.
In the April case, the Department of Energy loan programs office announced in a press release on April 12 conditional commitment to a $1.187 billion loan guarantee to support the California Valley Solar Ranch project, which it said was sponsored by SunPower Corporation.
But that release was later changed on one website to say the project was sponsored by NRG Energy. The date on the release remained April 12, 2011.
The name substitution is not completely random. NRG recently finalized its acquisition of the California Valley Solar Ranch project from SunPower in September. However, at the time of the press release in April, SunPower still controlled the project.

Nuke the DOE?
This is the most corrupt administration in American history on steroids.
This is the most corrupt democracy in the world.
Damn these people.
Okay, now that the debates are over for a little bit, can the MEDIA get over the non-stop distraction coverage of OWS and concentrate on these criminal activities within the current administration? Or is that too much to ask of journalists these days? (don’t make me answer thast)
Is Fox covering this forgery?
Nah, throw them to the sharks... with solar-powered lasers on their heads. It’s what they would want.
Jail ‘em and fine ‘em.
Hey Bro ( little Perry lingo)you didn't get the memo that we are a Banana Republic.
“Naturally, the DOE blames outside contractors, who inadvertently altered the news bulletins while updating the loans program website.”
IMPEACH!! IT’S TIME!!
In a speech to the Urban League last July, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., boasted of his efforts in 2001 to help a handful of African American-owned investment firms in Chicago get a larger share of business with Illinois state pension funds. "And in six months, they got about a half-billion dollars' worth of business simply on their excellence," Obama said.
What he did not say in his speech was that the owner of one of the investment firms, John Rogers of Ariel Capital, is a principal campaign fundraiser. Nor did he reveal that employees of the firms he helped have since contributed to or helped to raise more than $765,000 for his campaigns, according to campaign documents. Nor did he mention that two of the firms have allowed him to use their private jets. Nor did he mention that two of the firms have since been dismissed by the state pension fund for "underperformance."
