Russ Carnahan's Green Job

Unbelievable. Tom Carnahan asks for $90 million in tax credits, but gets $107 million in grants from the stimulus bill. Is it Russ Carnahan's (D-MO) job to dole out green to family members?
Among the 'green' projects in the report is a $107 million grant-in-lieu-of tax credit for the Lost Creek Wind Farm in northwest Missouri.

That project is developed by Wind Capital Group of St. Louis, whose president and CEO is Tom Carnahan. He's the brother of Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, and Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan.

The report says that the award occurred in July and that the project created 300 jobs during construction. A Lost Creek spokesman said that the wind farm, which already is in operation, created 2,500 throughout the supply chain.
No wonder someone recently registered the website: Mayor Slay would certainly be an improvement over Carnahan.

Carnahan is a disgrace and he needs to be replaced on Nov 2!!! How about all the Conservative Tea Party members get out and help the conservative who can boot Rubberstamp Russ out of office in 6 weeks. Call Ed Martin's campaign office at 314-256-1776. Get some skin in the game people and we'll get a conservative who will represent our values!
