Inspector general finds racial bias in auto dealership closings ordered by Obama

Troubled Asset Relief Program Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky has found that many of the General Motors and Chrysler dealerships ordered closed by the Obama administration, after last year’s bailouts, were victims of racial, gender and even political bias.
According to Barofsky’s report, 2,000 dealerships were forced to close which cost 100,000 jobs.
However, the businesses allowed to stay open “were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority-or woman-owned dealerships.”
The report also indicates a political bias may have come into play, due to a disproportionate number of dealership closings in rural areas, even though the closures could "jeopardize the return to profitability" for both GM and Chrysler.
Barofsky states: “ultimately close to half of all of the GM dealerships identified for termination were in rural areas.”
Of course, in 2008, Obama lost the vote in the nation's 1,300 rural counties by close to 80 percent.
