EnergySolutions spreads their wealth to all powerful officials.---
In Utah, it is fair to say the primary beneficiaries of the EnergySolutions cash cow are Republicans. But that is only because Republicans run this state, and EnergySolutions certainly does not shy away from donating to Democrats. You know, if they can actually find them.
On Tuesday, however, the nuclear waste love will be spread to the Donkeys, and it will not be small change. CEO Steve Creamer is hosting a reception "honoring" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid at his home in Salt Lake City. The event, which is private, will cost $1,000 per person.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the fundraiser is being organized privately by Creamer, and is not an official EnergySolutions event. For his part, Reid is not planning any public appearances, which I'm sure disappoints Utah Republicans more than Utah Democrats, considering the general mood towards D.C. Democrats right now.
