'We refer your question to the Democratic National Committee.'

That’s the response that the Daily Caller got to questions concerning huge Obama administration loans to green companies that have donated to the president’s campaign.


A Daily Caller investigation has found that in addition to the failed company Solyndra, at least four other solar panel manufacturing companies receiving in excess of $500 million in loan guarantees from the Obama administration employ executives or board members who have donated large sums of money to Democratic campaigns.

And as questions swirl around possible connections between political donations and these preferential financing arrangements, the Obama White House suddenly began deflecting The Daily Caller’s questions on Wednesday to the Democratic National Committee.

Asked Wednesday to comment on the connection between large Democratic donors and Obama administration loan guarantees to the companies they represent, the White House responded to TheDC with a single sentence: “We refer your question to the Democratic National Committee.”

One of the companies has ties to George Kaiser, the Dem donor who is also tied to Solyndra. One of the companies is connected to Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law. Should questions about that be referred to the DNC too? The way things are going, the questions will eventually be referred to a special prosecutor. But probably not before Steve Chu finds himself under the bus.
