Fisker-GM plant deal under scrutiny from Judicial Watch


"When Fisker Automotive announced it would buy an old General Motors plant in Delaware last fall, it was mostly reported as good news. The one bit of controversy was what role vice president Joe Biden played; Fisker said he was emphatically not a factor for locating the plug-in hybrid plant in the veep's home state."

"'The Obama administration needs to come clean with respect to how this deal was struck,' said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. 'Vice President Biden had inside knowledge about Fisker's purchase of a plant based in his home state, creating at least the appearance of impropriety. Taxpayers have half a billion dollars at stake in a controversial and expensive business idea. And now that the federal government has an ownership stake in the auto industry, its decisions must be completely transparent in order to root out any possible corruption.'"

2. Yes, far more controversial than the $50 BILLION in loans to GM
for which Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) fought tirelessly. :eyes:
