AIM Exclusive Release – The Case of CH2M HILL: $2 Billion in Crony Stimulation

WASHINGTON, December 1, 2011 – Accuracy in Media’s Center for Investigative Journalism released a special report, detailing Solyndra sub-contractor CH2M HILL’s history of fraud, kickbacks and Federal violations; and how it received taxpayer funding.

“In the wake of several Energy Department scandals it is important to analyze how taxpayer funded projects have developed, and what mistakes were made along the way,’” special report author Rusty Weiss said. “It is not a time to blindly grant multi-million dollar loans to companies that administration officials know will fail; it is a time to scrutinize the potential use of every dollar so they are not wasted. Perhaps the case of CH2M HILL will serve to remind our government of a commitment to be responsible and restrained with the American people’s money.”
