California Democratic Party among Solyndra?s creditors

According to the Washington Times the California democrat party was listed as a creditor to Solyndra, no-one seems to know why.

Out of the hundreds of out-of-work employees, vendors, investors and other creditors in the bankruptcy of government-backed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, one name stands out: the California Democratic Party.

Why California Democrats would be creditor to a company that received more than a half-billion dollars in federal loans to build a solar-panel plant isn?t clear. Even party officials say they?re not sure.

The California Democratic Party?s communications director, Tenoch Flores, said the organization was not owed ?any funds in any form? by the California-based company. He said he was unclear why the party would be listed as a creditor in Solyndra?s bankruptcy filing.

According to campaign-finance records, Solyndra donated $7,500 to the California Democratic Party in October 2010. It?s legal in California for corporations to make donations. But that doesn?t explain why the company would identify the Democratic Party as a creditor in its bankruptcy filing a year later.

A Solyndra spokesman did not respond to messages seeking more details about the filing.
