Norman, Comer Press Secretary Granholm on Violating Ethics Rules
- February 14, 2022
At the time of her Senate confirmation as Secretary, Granholm withheld a multi-million-dollar stake in Proterra, an electric vehicle company, and served on the board of directors. Before Secretary Granholm divested over 240,000 shares of Proterra stock, President Biden participated in an event promoting Proterra, Inc. and its initiative to design and manufacture zero-emission electric transit vehicles. The promotion of Proterra, Inc. and Secretary Grandholm’s financial ties are troubling and raise questions about whether the company receives preferential treatment from the Department of Energy.
