Another bankrupt green company? No, wait. This particular company is under investigation:The bankrupt Longmont-based company that received $68 million in stimulus money is under investigation by the Weld County district attorney’s office.7NEWS has confirmed Abound Solar is under investigation.Abound made solar panels which it sold across the country, Europe and India.The Department of Energy approved nearly $370 million in federal stimulus money for Abound.

Cory Gardner, R-Colo....Apparently, stimulus and other taxpayer funds for alternative energy have brought the scammers out in force. Sheesh.
Abound Solar got a $400 million federal "loan" despite the company's low rating. As my father used to say, "Somebody's getting a rake-off."
