Las Vegas, NV – Governor Brian Sandoval and Senator Dean Heller have now both repudiated accidental Congressman Cresent Hardy’s conspiracy theory claims about Faraday Future being a plot by the Chinese to steal U.S. military secrets.
But in a new Associated Press story, a spokesman for Hardy doubled down today, saying there are “legitimate concerns” about Faraday threatening “one of our nation’s most vital military installations.” The same story points out that the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, representing federal agencies including the Department of Defense, reviewed and cleared the project last December.
Hardy’s claim that his concerns are now “legitimate” begs a few questions:
– Is Congressman Hardy’s position now that he’s actually against Faraday Future coming to his district? Does he want to put a hold on the 4,500 jobs Faraday is projected to create?
– If Hardy thought there were “legitimate concerns” about Faraday, how has he been silent for the past eight months?
– Will Governor Sandoval ask Congressman Hardy to stop fear-mongering about this massive economic development deal?
– Hardy’s office leaked a redacted email from an Air Force commander to the Associated Press. Will they share it with the public?
