There IS something to be said for “consistency”. Even in the midst of all the crap, “Crony Capitalism” is STILL alive and well and THRIVING within the hallowed halls of Barry-land! – Same story; different angle; it ALL smells to high Heaven!!!

“ECOtality’s Revolving Door – Electric vehicle manufacturer hires DOE official after receiving more than $100M in federal funds”

http://freebeacon.com/ecotalitys-revolving-door/

“A former top Energy Department official has taken a position on the board of a company that received millions in taxpayer money from the department through a stimulus program that has come under criticism from Congress and independent watchdogs.

… ECOtality announced in a July 9 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it has appointed Brandon Hurlbut, former chief of staff for recently departed Energy Secretary Steven Chu, to its board.

Hurlbut marks a high profile addition to a roster of political connections that helped ECOtality secure more than $100 million in taxpayer financing for its electric vehicle charging stations.

ECOtality secured a $99.8 million award in 2009 to install nearly 15,000 electric vehicle chargers throughout the country.”
