Bridging the gap between the Solyndra fiasco and Congressional insider trading, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her husband invested $1M into Amyris Biotechnologies (AMRS) - a "green" energy company - in 2009, shortly before the firm received a $24M grant from the DOE. The company went public a year later, and it's unknown how much the Feinsteins profited.

    Capitalism at work.. you have money, you have power, you have power, you have insider knowledge and use that to get ahead even more. I don't see what's wrong with this. The strong will win, the weak must perish

    The difference is, these liberal wackos, not conservatives, are the ones claiming the higher moral ground, advocating bigger and bigger government for the social good, promoting themselves as defenders of the average person. Their hypocrisy is beyond belief...

    DOE is full of political prostitutes. Their laundry will get aired in the next election cycle. Oblamless is going to need more than a bunch of sexual harassment charges against his competition to clear his path.
