CRONY CAPITALISM:: Former Solyndra lobbyist and current Obama Super PAC donor gets government green for green projects | Washington Free Beacon
BY: Andrew Evans –
A lobbyist and Obama Super Pac donor who has had numerous meetings at the White House has represented green energy concerns that have secured millions of government dollars—including the failed solar-panel manufacturer Solyndra.
David H. Mann’s work focuses on “the areas of clean technology, energy and environmental policy, and transportation as well as federal funding and appropriations,” putting his work squarely in the middle of the green energy businesses championed, mandated, and subsidized by Democrats and the Obama administration.
The Obama administration, which has a well-known affection for green energy, has granted Mann significant access: He met with White House officials four times in under two years between 2010 and 2012, records show. He has donated $500 to Priorities USA, the Obama-affiliated super PAC.
