GOP Donor May Get $65M For COVID Plasma “Plant” Based In Owner’s Condo, Santorum Has Financial Stake

Nice to see they are spending our needed tax money wisely.   Too bad that money couldn’t be used to pay peoples rents and other bills.   Hugs

The Associated Press reports:

When the Trump administration gave a well-connected Republican donor seed money to test a possible COVID-19-fighting blood plasma technology, it noted the company’s “manufacturing facilities” in Charleston, South Carolina.

Plasma Technologies LLC is indeed based in the stately waterfront city. But there are no manufacturing facilities. Instead, the company exists within the luxury condo of its majority owner, Eugene Zurlo.

Zurlo’s company may be in line for as much as $65 million in taxpayer dollars; enough to start building an actual production plant, according to internal government records and other documents obtained by The Associated Press.

      Hello Nan. Do you ever wonder how much taxpayer dollars would be saved to be used for things people really needed if the grift and graft were eliminated? Think how much money must be transferred in shady means to the connected wealthy people. It scares me that the public treasure is seen as a money fountain for the wealthy. At the same time it is draining the needed money from the lower incomes. Hugs

        Unfortunately, that’s the storyline for politics and politicians … of both parties. Yes, the Dems spread things out a bit more, but they aren’t without their own faults.

          Hello Nan. I feel the degree of corruption and self dealing has exploded on the Republican side during the tRump crime spree. I think there is no reasonable way to compare the two parties in this right now. Hugs
