The other question raised by wind industry donations to DGA  

Credit:  The Baltimore Sun, www.baltimoresun.com 1 December 2011 ~~

Aside from Gov. Martin O’Malley’s denial of any “quid pro quo,” the large donations of the various wind industries to the Democratic Governors Association inexplicably coincides with the governor’s past and future embrace of offshore wind (“Firms with interests in Md. pour cash into DGA,” Nov. 27). That aside, it also raises another question. If the industry has enough money to give large donations to secure their highly questionable industry, why do they need big grants, loans, etc. extended by the federal Government?
