    Brian Harrison, the chief executive of Solyndra – the solar energy firm that filed for bankruptcy last month after receiving a $528 million federal loan – has stepped down in the wake of multiple investigations into the company that threaten to tarnish the White House.

    Harrison, who was among the company’s top executives to plead the Fifth repeatedly during a congressional hearing last month, “left the company as scheduled” last Friday, Solyndra reported in a bankruptcy court document filed late Tuesday and obtained by FoxNews.com. But the document didn’t offer more details on his departure and a Solyndra spokesman could not be reached for comment.

    The company is seeking to replace him with R. Todd Neilson, who would serve as Solyndra’s chief restructuring officer. Neilson has previously served as bankruptcy trustee for former boxing star Mike Tyson and Death Row Records, which once employed Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog, according to the filing.

    The departure comes just one week after the Energy Department confirmed that the director of its controversial loan program resigned. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said that Jonathan Silver told him in July that he planned to return to the private sector soon after the program ended Sept. 30.

    That just paves the way for his appointment to Business Czar.

    I was thinking more like it qualifies him as a replacement for Tim Geithner! :eek:

    For the same reason that very little stuck to Clinton: Media malpractice. When you have billions of dollars worth of free publicity from the major media drowning out all criticism, it's harder to make something stick. On the plus side, Obama's approval numbers are collapsing in spite of the perpetual media screen.

    Believe me, when the 2012 presidential race kicks up in earnest, believe you me who ever the GOP candidate is is going to trumpet this from the hills. Unlike when the left tried to pin World Com and Enron on Bush, this scandal has Obumbles finger prints all over it.

    And the whole stimulus thing was sold to the public as money that would be spent to best stimulate job growth....

    There's no way investing in companies like Solyndra could fall into such a category. The same goes for propping up union expenses. The bill was grossly misrepresented to the country. No misspeaks, no room for nuance...we were purposely lied to by this administration.

    And there are still people out there who will vote for him ?!!!
