    Crony Capitalism: $737 Million Green Jobs Loan Given to Nancy Pelosi's Brother-In-Law
    11:00 AM, Sep 29, 2011 • By MARK HEMINGWAYSingle Page


    Despite the growing Solyndra scandal, yesterday the Department of Energy approved $1 billion in new loans to green energy companies -- including a $737 million loan guarantee to a company known as SolarReserve:

    SolarReserve LLC, a closely held renewable energy developer, received a $737 million U.S. Energy Department loan guarantee to build a solar-thermal project in Nevada.

    The 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes project, near Tonopah, Nevada, will use the sun’s heat to create steam that drives a turbine, the agency said today in a e-mailed statement. SolarReserve is based in Santa Monica, California.

    On SolarReserve's website is a list of "investment partners," including the "PCG Clean Energy & Technology Fund (East) LLC." As blogger American Glob quickly discovered, PCG's number two is none other than "Ronald Pelosi, a San Francisco political insider and financial industry polymath who happens to be the brother-in-law of Nancy Pelosi, the Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives."

    You would think that if she is going to play favorites that at least it would be a project in California to create some jobs there. But what does she care it's all in the family and who knows how much kick back there will be.

    well if he's as smart as Nancy the only reason he would be #2 at PCG is to get the federal loan.

    Wouldn't this be an illegal loan?

    Remember back during Watergate when they found out about a $205,000 loan to Richard Nixon's businessman brother? That was illegal.

    So why isn't this loan illegal? Or is it just suddenly because the Democrats are in charge, that makes it okay? Whomever runs against Obama ought to bring this up in a debate. As well as the birth certificate issue, Obama's ties to Bill Ayers, the racist church he went to for 20 years in Chicago and the Solyndra and Fast and Furious scandals.

    After you drain the swamp, it's easier to feed the alligators.

    Draining the swamp in Washington would be like burning down your own house in the ghetto's. No racism intended.

    OK lets all get together and form a company and do this. I want a job where I can legally steal.

    First we need a printing press to create the cash, have the fed reserve hold onto it for a couple of days, then "loan" it to us.
