This article was written right after President Obama came to Solyndra to announce the $535 million loan guarantees for the new Fremont plant. It is skeptical of Solyndra’s prospects and questions the Department of Energy made a mistake.
This Wall Street Journal blog post notes that a big investor in Solyndra is Oklahoma billionaire George Kaiser, or at least the venture capital arm of his banking and oil empire.
And this article notes that Kaiser was a “bundler” for Obama, which means he gathered lots of campaign contributions for the president during the 2008 campaign.
