According to the White House, there was nothing special about the money given to Solyndra. Sure, Solyndra VPs donated thousands to the Obama Presidential Campaign, but that was nothing. The President wasn't playing favorites, they say, and he didn't campaign specifically for Solyndra over other companies. However, according to a newly found press release on Solyndra's own website, that does not seem to be he case.
Solyndra logo Solyndra wrote a release when it received the massive loan in March of 2009. Solyndra CEO and Founder Chris Gronet thanked President Obama personally for the money, saying:
"The leadership and actions of President Barack Obama, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, and the U.S. Congress were instrumental in concluding this offer for a loan guarantee.”
