Rhode Island is enmeshed in its own “Solyndra” scandal involving $75 million of taxpayers’ money, star-struck politicians and Curt Schilling, one of New England’s greatest sports heroes, the state’s GOP Senate hopeful tells Newsmax.
“This is a prime example of why our government should not be in the business of picking winners and losers in the marketplace, Barry Hinckley said as the scandal grew.
“This is Rhode Island’s very own Solyndra.
“We all lose when our government gives special favors to corporations with political connections,” Hinckley said. “The taxpayers of Rhode Island have lost, the employees of 38 Studios have lost, and the business environment in Rhode Island has lost.”
