At least Glinda for example, sees this and goes "Bull****s alert"
    So your evidence of corruption is that this loan was made to a different town than the one you like?
    Or are you still on the thing about interest rates that you don't have any evidence to support?

    So that makes it okay to use money ostensibly set aside for small towns to fund a Casino's PR project at low interest rate?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You have absolutely no clue what's going on here do you?

    The funds came from a fund set up to help communities of less then 20,000 to fund projects they couldn't otherwise get credit for.

    As Glinda showed, this makes this loan highly suspect. Towns that need the money lose, because a highly profitable Casino got the money. Do you get it yet?

    That's entirely possible. But if that's the case, there's still something fishy going on.

    Stimulus money is earmarked for "communities of less than 20,000," not "groups of 1700 living in a community of less than 20,000," that can't get reasonable loans otherwise. If the actual community doesn't qualify because it's a bad credit risk, that should be the end of it, shouldn't it?

    According to Dodd's office, the tribe did apply for the loan:
    "Throughout his career, Sen. Dodd and the entire Connecticut delegation have worked tirelessly to secure jobs and economic prosperity for the state of Connecticut," a Dodd spokesman said in a statement to the Hartford Courant. "That is why he supported the economic recovery package, as well as the Mohegan Tribe's loan application, because it will create and preserve local jobs."
    The article mentions another interesting (and questionable) tidbit:
    Of the $54 million to the Mohegan tribe, $31.5 million will be used to construct an educational center and $22.2 million to build a community center, according to the Agriculture Department.

    The building will house the tribe's library, archives, tribal court, health and human services, Bunnell said.

    "It has nothing to do with the casino," he said.
    So, this loan is going to a tribe (1700 people), not the larger community (approx. 19,000 people), and the money will pay to build something that's solely for the use and betterment of... the tribe. Which already has millions.

    This whole thing stinks. I say Dodd and his pals have some 'splainin' to do.

    It wasn't given to a Casino.

    The funds went to the owners of the casino, the Mohegan tribe. Which isn't exactly poor or without options, because they own the casino.

    i'm not sure i see the bigger issue here. it's a loan, right? and it's as i thought, they are having difficulty with credit.

    USDA officials said that part of their consideration in moving forward with the project was the tribe's continued challenge in obtaining credit because of the ongoing economic crisis.

    The tribe's Lynn Malerba issued a press release when the money was awarded, saying that the construction of a community center and government building would provide important jobs to unemployed workers and help the tribe finish a project that was both shovel-ready and integral to the tribe's identity.

    It was given to the tribe that owns the Casino to build a PR Project and to promote their own tribe.

    Now, are you going to keep telling us this was a good use of money?

    I find it exceedingly difficult to accept that a group of 1700 people that takes in more than $50 million in profits annually is "having difficulty with credit."

    USDA officials said that part of their consideration in moving forward with the project was the tribe's continued challenge in obtaining credit because of the ongoing economic crisis.
    That's a cop out, political excuse (and not a very good one). EVERY group of 1700 individuals, every community of less (or more) than 20,000, every freakin' STATE is challenged in obtaining credit because of the ongoing economic crisis. What makes this super wealthy tribe so special?

    I still call bull****. Dodd and his cronies are up to something dirty, here.
