Did Campaign Contributions Determine Which Chrysler Dealers Were Closed?

This is a question now being scrutinized (see one site here) by some who have begun to notice that among those dealers closed, a seemingly disproportionate number of them were significant donors to the Republican party and Republican candidates.

If it could be shown that the Obama administration forced Chrysler dealerships to close and that the manner of selecting those dealerships had political motives, this would be a scandal far greater than any seen in the last 35 years at the presidential level. Closing these dealerships summarily already has legal implications (like, say, breach of contract) which the owners have the right to fight in court—regardless of anything else.

If it is true, then what we will see is the worst of Chicago-style thug-politics-from-the-gutter being practiced at the very highest level. The mob bosses may actually become envious.

I hope to see this thoroughly researched. Soon.

Thanks to theblogprof for alerting me to this story.
