Here’s the link, from Carolina Journal, Hagan Firm Keeps Stimulus Project Savings, Sends None to Taxpayers:
DC Manufacturing, a company co-owned by Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan’s husband Charles “Chip” Hagan, lowered the total cost of a 2010 stimulus-funded energy project but kept all of the savings, sending none back to taxpayers who had funded the stimulus grant.
The company’s original application stated the total project would cost $438,627, and said JDC would contribute “leveraged funds” amounting to $187,983, or 43 percent of the total. As the project reached completion, however, JDC revised the total budget downward by $114,519 and applied all the savings to its share, keeping all the taxpayer funding.
Also, JDC’s decision to hire Solardyne/Green State Power, a separate company co-owned by Chip Hagan and the Hagans’ son Tilden, to install a portion of the stimulus-funded energy project at the JDC building appears to violate a conflict-of-interest provision that was included as part of the original application for the stimulus grant.
Admittedly, I haven’t followed the NC Senate race that carefully, but just about every analysis reflects that Hagan is outperforming expectations, and that Thom Tillis is running a lackluster campaign forcing the NRSC to try a massive rescue operation.
The expected response from Hagan: War on Women.DONATE
