In 2009, the Democrat controlled Congress passed President Barack Obama’s “economic stimulus package”, which included a series of spending programs and tax cuts designed to jumpstart the American economy. North Carolina’s Democrat Senator Kay Hagan voted for the stimulus.
One of the programs in the stimulus bill were several tax credits and Federal grants for low energy and renewable energy projects. One of the main beneficiaries is a company owned by Senator Hagan’s husband and his two brothers JDC Manufacturing.
JDC Manufacturing, a company co-owned by the Democratic senator’s husband, Chip, received nearly $390,000 in federal grants for energy projects and tax credits created by the 2009 stimulus law, according to public records and information provided by the company. Financial disclosure statements show that the Hagans’ income from JDC Manufacturing increased from less than $201 in 2008 to nearly $134,000 in 2013.
Caitlin Legacki, the spokeswoman for JDC Manufacturing, is a former Democratic operative and now a spokeswoman for the company. Legacki is also listed as a principal at Precision Strategies, the crisis-management/branding/organization-building outfit piloted by partner Stephanie Cutter, a former top Obama campaign official and a CNN pundit. She also happens to be the former communications aide for Kay Hagan.
Part of her campaign for Senate in 2014 against Thomas Tillis is “he sides with special interests”. What bigger special interest is there Kay Hagan besides your own bank account?
