FREMONT..........It seems that more than a few FBI agents are around the Silicon Valley area with former agent Neilson taking over the running of the company for suspected fraud in the bankrupt company.
According to a story on CNN it was reported that there appear to be a few large grossing companies in the Mid Peninsula area under investigation since the collapse of Solyndra Solar Panel group got a half billion dollar loan and the amount being checked is even higher in the $700,000 group.
Rumors of FBI being on the lookout for frauds and large company mistakes have been circulating for months and are apparently true.

Ahh, Solyndra, the high speed rail of corporate America. Government dollars go in the door, get cycled back to political donors until the music stops and taxpayers get left holding the empty bag. At least we got to feel good about ourselves for a little while for doing something "green".

Well Sir
TESLA got a half billion dollar loan from the govt. and I have never heard many stories about it or what interest they are paying for a really late starter in the high speed automotive (0-60 in 7)electric car competition where a country like Croatia (who would have suspected?)has a better and faster and less expensive auto ready to go into production...(the two seater is HOT!looking too for those young billionaires with solar panels already and looking for a place to get a crash tested vehicle about a year before the local product passes scrutiny)
It is a GOOD thing that the Solyndra experience made you and your friends in T.H. and TAILS feel positive about "green" finally having a go by those who work their butts off to prevent it and appear to be participants who love mother earth. There is NEXT10 in Oakland, which also has green ties to the Mid Peninsula in Woodside, and they may even own a solar panel of two on one of their swimming pools in Woodside for the rich kids.(I do not know if outsiders are welcome)
There is NO reason that an area as rich as this could not have a total solar community functioning 15 years ago. Know why not?
"They are so unnattractive and would ruin my home.".....that has been heard more than dozens of time and Tweeted and blogged by the young, who, it seems are defying the radically right opinion.
As for the FBI you really think that they were just a few miles down the road working on Solyndra?.....Sources say it is a ruse and that there may be a few ex boss J.Edgar hanging around the richest parts and have been surprised about the amount of hidden money.Does Sand Hill Rd. sound like a stretch of business locations?
Like the expression used frequently "It is a place (person) of interest". Now the files are stamped in Hawaiian goop some love.

I really truly honestly hate your last sentence...either don't effing say it at all or use supporting evidence that the rumors are true. Give me a name of an agent confirming this is happening. Otherwise you will be written off as a bad journalist and nobody will read your extremist propaganda
