Trouble ahead for Lew on Solyndra?


A congressional report on the Solyndra debacle could leave some egg on the face of the White House chief of staff, Jack Lew.

The Washington Post reports:

The House energy committee is expected to release the results of its 18-month investigation into Solyndra this week. Its report, parts of which were obtained by The Washington Post, suggests that then-OMB Director Jack Lew let the refinancing move forward without intervening, even though some OMB analysts thought a refinancing plan that favored private investors might violate the law. Lew is now White House chief of staff.

Lew, an Orthodox Jew, has been an administration point person on reaching out to the Jewish community since being named White House chief of staff.
