The Heritage Foundation is on the case, accusing DARPA of hiring a Solyndra-tied fink. The connection:
Arati Prabhakar, a former partner at U.S. Venture Partners, a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that backed Solyndra, has been named the new director of DoD’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency(DARPA). Prabhakaker will administer DARPA’s roughly $3 billion budget, some of which will likely continue funding projects in renewable energy.
While there is no indication that Prabhakar was involved with Solyndra during her time at USVP...
No indication, but if your venture capital firm invested in a company that later got a benefit from the government and then went bankrupt, you're part of the problem.
