DOE’s Moniz tries end-run, again, around Congress and Applicants

DOE Secretary Moniz is trying an end-run around the Federal law which created funds for electric cars.

Having been caught destroying and rigging the application process for hundreds of applicants, except for a couple of campaign contributors, who those applicants would have competed with, DOE staff are trying another scheme to payoff campaign kickbacks.

When the ATVM/LGP law was written, it created an open contest for everyone in America. When the first ATVM/LGP Secretary of Energy: Steven Chu, got ahold of it he made it a kickback program for select campaign crony’s and a kill-button for the competitors of those campaign crony’s. Not a single American applicant company was allowed through unless they had made multi-million dollar campaign contributions.

In the rear-view mirror of history, it is blatantly obvious, by the metrics, that the program was rigged to favor a pre-set few and to terminate a large group of others. It is obvious , from the historically massive failures of A123, Abound, Solyndra, Fisker, etc., etc, etc.. that DOE did no due diligence but just simply waved the hard-wired crony’s through.

Now Moniz wants to be Chu and take the money and give it to friends in supplier groups who are not building electric cars, per the law. This is known as “back-dooring” a crony gift.

This time around, though, hundreds of investigative reporters, and members of the public, are watching every move, every cent and every entity that might get the re-routed money. If any of them have a whisp of campaign contribution connection of crony alliance, you can bet the sparks will fly for all parties! “Take that money and expect scrutiny of everything down to a microscopic level”, say investigators.
