“Green” funds for campaign contributors continues

Kleiner Perkins partner John Doerr hosted President Obama at a February dinner for high-tech executives at his secluded estate south of San Francisco. Doerr and Kleiner Perkins executives have contributed more than $1 million to federal political causes and campaigns over the past two decades, primarily supporting Democrats. …. Another politically connected electric carmaker that has fed at the federal trough — to the tune of $465 million — as part of this program is Tesla Motors, whose Roadster starts at a cool $109,000. …. Tesla board member Steve Westly is an Obama bundler who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for him in 2008 and for his 2012 re-election campaign. – IBD Editorials
