The NJ reports that the con artists who have scammed Delaware out of millions and the feds out of half a billion don’t want to let the Delaware taxpayer have a look at what they are paying for. I’m referring to the Fisker hybrid car con men; not the Bluewater, White Oak Solar or HelioSage ones. Delaware must be on a list as a soft touch. I hear that the strategy for investing state employee pension money is responding to the emails about Nigerian investment opportunities and European sweepstakes, but I digress.
From the NJ article:
Delaware State Chamber of Commerce President Jim Wolfe says he has lobbied Fisker to bring its Karma, an $88,000 luxury plug-in hybrid sedan, to Delaware for the four-year-old, three-day event this October.
He also says he received somewhat of a lukewarm response.
“Here’s what they pretty much said: ‘If we have a Karma in the area, we probably could do that, but we’re not sure at this time,’ ” Wolfe said.
They can’t let people see the thing up close or they are going to realize this is all smoke and mirrors. Heaven forbid someone wants to ride in the thing. They won’t even reveal what real gas mileage the thing gets.
When you have given someone that kind of money, you should not be having to ask them twice. You ask once to be nice, then you call Uncle Jack who should tell them in no uncertain terms that the Karma will be here for the October show and the Nina will be unveiled at the 2012 show.
I saw “Hartlyboy” commented:
Probably the only existing prototype is making the rounds to some other sucker government trying to snare more ‘investment incentives’.
Sadly for Fisker, I don’t think they have “rubes” like ours in government elsewhere; except in DC of course. And if this were real, private investors would have been first in line for this opportunity.
