Colorado-based solar firm that got DOE loan to file for bankruptcy
Abound Solar, a Colorado-based solar panel maker that received a $400 million loan guarantee from the Obama administration said Thursday it will file for bankruptcy.
Abound is the third clean energy company to seek bankruptcy protection after receiving a loan from the Energy Department under the economic stimulus law. California solar panel maker Solyndra and Beacon Power, a Massachusetts energy-storage firm, declared bankruptcy last year. Solyndra received a $528 million federal loan, while Beacon Power got a $43 million loan guarantee.
Congressional Republicans compared Abound’s failure to Solyndra’s collapse and said more failures were likely.
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of a House oversight committee on stimulus spending said “Our government is not good at picking winners and losers in the marketplace but has certainly proved it is good at wasting taxpayer dollars.”

Ilias Kasidiaris extreme right party spokesman who caused an uproar last week by slapping one female politician on live TV and throwing a glass of water on another.
In a cowardly act, Kasidiaris avoided an arrest warrant for the confrontation last Thursday, by hiding out only resurfacing late Sunday after the arrest warrant had expired.
Kasidiaris had also been accused of attacking a student in 2007. Kasidiaris was due to stand trial Monday in a separate case, in which he is accused of participating in a 2007 attack on a student. This case was postponed to Sept 3. In it, he faces charges of assisting in a robbery and bodily harm after his car was allegedly used in the incident.
This accused criminal should be arrested and jailed without bail until both of these violent crime charges against him have resolved.

White House pushing blame on Bush administration for GSA debacle
Obama administration responding to a report that shows (GSA) a federal agency spent more that $800,000 on a lavish conference near Las Vegas by putting blame on the Bush administration.
The Inspector General Office’s report last week about the 2010 General Services Administration conference outside of Las Vegas indicates the Obama administration knew about the trip since May 2010. But had not taken any corrective actions.
One video shows an [GSA] employee performing in a fake music video, which is laced with jokes and references that only federal employees are likely to get. In the lyrics, the employee sings: “Donate my vacation, love to the nation, I’ll never be under OIG [Office of the Inspecting General] investigation.”
The report found the Public Buildings Service, part of the General Services Administration, spent more than $840,000 tax payer dollars on the conference.
