Tainted Obama Official Leaves Energy Department for Soros-Backed Private Equity Fund

Well, what a surprise. reports

Cathy Zoi, who was the Acting Under Secretary for Energy and Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, is going to work for a new cleantech private equity fund sponsored by George Soros and a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm.

The new fund will invest in…wait for it…”the energy and resource sectors.”

Zoi became a bit of a public relations headache for the Obama administration after it was revealed she held a stake in two rent-seeking businesses that were gearing up to benefit from energy efficiency programs sponsored by the government.

What’s next? Will Van Jones move to Fenton Communications? (That’s not a serious question, by the way.)
