One reporter had the guts to ask the question: Why did this happen under the Obama Administration Ownership? Watch as Investigative Fox Reporter Charlie LeDuff, of Fox2 Detroit , as he goes after the Washington Politician going after General Motors.
Remember that one?
That's a huge, overlooked detail in this whole GM recall crisis - the federal government's oversight of a company they bought out of bankruptcy four years ago and, under their nose, that same company is hiding its deadly, dirty laundry.
Charlie LeDuff caught up with California Democrat Henry Waxman, who was head of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform at the time of that purchase.
Watch the video closely. He doesn't seem to have any answers.
LeDuff: So if you didn't know and the GM executives say they didn't know, who's supposed to know and what does that say about your ability to run this country?
Waxman: This is a problem that GM knew about and they didn't do anything about it.
LeDuff: Why didn't you know about it? You spent $50 billion of the American taxpayer's money.
Waxman: This is not about me. It's about GM and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
LeDuff: That's the federal government as well.
Waxman: Thank you very much.
