Priceless

by Andrew Stiles

Just came across an e-mail, dated Oct. 1, 2009, that Solyndra CEO Chris Gronet wrote to Steve Mitchell, crony capitalist extraordinaire, as the company was in the process of applying for a second Department of Energy loan guarantee (which, quite fortunately, was never approved): “We will be the largest U.S.-content solar manufacturer in the world very soon.”

These days, Gronet is the target of an FBI investigation. Hope and change.
