Solyndra’s CEO labeled President Barack Obama’s administration “The Bank of Washington.”
Chris Gronet offered the description in an internal email one year before the company collapsed in 2010, costing taxpayers roughly $500 million.
The email was obtained and published by the Republican National Committee.
“The Bank of Washington continues to help us!” he wrote in the October 2009 e-mail, which sketched plans for Solyndra to exploit several additional federal programs and tax-incentives.
