Easy Money: Funnel $6,175 to Liberal Democrats, Get Back $4.6 Million (Plus Tax Abatements)!
Iredale Cosmetics' Sleazy Tax-Exempt Bond Deal: Payback for Campaign Cash to Obama & Dems?
Great Barrington, Massachusetts -- There may be other considerations attached to the recent grant of a $4.6 million tax-exempt federal Recovery Zone Facilities Bond to Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Ltd..
Jeffrey Simon, director of the Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Office, claimed May 25 that the Great Barrington-based company and its project to rehab the former Bryant Elementary School into Iredale's new corporate headquarters is "a model for other businesses".
What Mr. Simon failed to mention in his glowing assessment of Iredale was that the $4.6 million RZFB tax-exempt bond his agency had awarded could easily be construed to be the quid pro quo for thousands of dollars in federal campaign contributions funneled by Ms. Iredale to Liberal Democrats.
Jane Iredale's company was awarded the largest helping of federal RZFB bond funds allocated to Berkshire County.
A total of $5.725 million was allocated (via formula using data supplied by both the Bureau of Labor Statistics and U.S. Treasury applicable to all counties nationwide) to all of Berkshire County for eligible projects, yet inexplicably Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Ltd. was awarded the lion's share of the available local funds, receiving $4.6 million. All bonds had to be issued by January 1, 2011.
The federal largess shown Iredale Mineral Cosmetics appears to be the direct result of owner Jane Iredale's own largess: the CEO's generous cash contributions to Barack Obama in 2008 in the midst of his run for President, as well as to the campaigns of U.S. Senator John F. Kerry (D-MA) and Congressman John W. Olver (D-MA1).
Ms. Iredale is also no slouch when it comes to opening her wallet to the Democrat National Committee and to left-wing Democrat causes and political organizations like MoveOn.org .
The money for the tax-exempt bond, doled out from the federal Recovery Zone Bond Program established under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (signed into law by Barack Hussein Obama in 2009), is being administered by Mr. Simon's office (an agency that itself is one of the state's newest patronage havens controlled by Beacon Hill's Liberal Democrats).
(Truncated)
Regarding generous helpings of largess from local taxpayers: Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Ltd. is now also on the receiving end of a generous local real estate tax abatement from the Liberal Democrat-controlled Town of Great Barrington awarded by the town's Board of Assessors. <<<<<

Go get them Heller your on something that the other party does.
