According to the Washington Examiner, the Salahi’s received a $100,000 grant from the Department of Agriculture to conduct a Virginia wine touring feasibility study and marketing plan to determine if increased visits in Virginia wineries would increase site sales. First of all, it doesn’t take a genius or even my degree in Economics from Wake Forest University to understand that if you increase visits to Virginia wineries, you will increase site sales. I really don’t understand why government wastes our hard earned tax-dollars on these no-brainer studies. Couldn’t they give out grants for cancer research or bio fuels. Anyhow, I digress.
Well, it seems the Salahi’s turned in a study that someone else had done for the State of Virginia, said it was their own study, and kept the cash. An investigation is still ongoing. I just hope some criminal charges are brought, because these two people are running around like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde with no consequences for their behavior. It’s amazing that with all this going on, these people can sleep at night let alone have the nerve to demand an apology from the Obama White House! If you’d like to see these two con artists, Carol Joynt plans to have them at her Q & A Cafe at the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown on Thursday, June 17th. I won’t be there.
