    Any time you see the words “internal memo” in a news report, you know it can't be good.

    You'd think these guys in Washington would know better by now...

    If you're going to do something shady, don't use email as your method of communication. Even drug dealers know better than to use email, land lines, or traceable mobile phones.

    Don't get me wrong; I'm not comparing common drug dealers to politicians.

    After all, drug dealers know how to support job creation in a real free market.

    Laws? What Laws?

    So a series of emails that were probably never meant to be shared with the public have shown that an assistant Treasury secretary told the deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget that the Solyndra deal could violate federal law because it put investors' interests ahead of taxpayers' interests.

    This isn't new.

    You think all those ethanol subsidies didn't put investors' interests ahead of taxpayers' interests?

    You think all those agricultural subsidies don't put investors' interests ahead of taxpayers' interests?

    You think all those “clean coal” subsidies don't put investors' interests ahead of taxpayers' interests?

    Hell, just last month the DOE awarded $14 million to six carbon capture projects — $14 million at a time when they're supposedly getting tough on spending.

    Meanwhile, the $4 billion welfare check for the oil & gas industry every year is still getting cut...

    Interestingly, while the Obama administration's Solyndra scandal is making the rounds on all the cable news shows, we haven't heard much about another scandal coming out of the White House.

    And this one is connected to a $13 billion project.
