The Tribune Washington Bureau has reported that the U.S. Department of Energy employee who helped monitor the Solyndra loan guarantee was one of Obama’s top fundraisers. Fundraising? Contracts? Imagine that. Steve Spinner was the Obama administration official in charge of handing out billions and billions of tax dollars to “green” energy deals.

According to the Tribune story, Spinner the other day invited Obama’s national political finance committee to a meeting in Chicago. The name of the Obama fundraising initiative? “Technology for Obama.” The idea of the Obama fundraisers getting together, talking “green,” and perhaps offering taxpayer loan guarantees to insider businesses in the interest of helping the environment — it all seems rather fresh.
