Since (according to the LA Times) we paid Solyndra’s legal bill to Wilson Sonsini of $2.4 million, I would like to know what was done…wouldn’t you? I can tell you from my experience as a lawyer, that is a BIG tax bill and we should review it. What did we get? What was billed? And why are WE paying Solyndra’s legal bills? That is absurd that we paid their legal bill to get $535 million out of us…that is like sending the fox out to guard the chicken coop!
I asked for some research to be done to find the bill so that I could go over Wilson Sonsini’s legal bill. Here is the message I got back:
“…The actual legal bill that Wilson Sonsini submitted to Solyndra is not a matter of public record. Solyndra, as part of its Recovery Act reporting requirements, was required to disclose summary information about how the Recovery Act funds were spent, including the identity of the vendors, their DUNS number, the payment amount and a description of the product/service provided….”
This just is not right. Not a public record? We paid for it! We (taxpayers) get billed 2.4 million dollars for Solyndra’s legal bills (not to mention the about $535 loan!) and we can’t find out WHAT services were rendered??
