If you did not catch John Stossel's program tonight on "Crony Capitalism," he did a segment that the Freedom Foundation of Minnesota helped him with (a lot!) about a small window company called Serious Materials. The company claims to produce the most energy efficient windows in the world, which other larger companies dispute -- but that's not the point. Watch the Stossel segment below and you'll see how Serious got some high profile endorsements from President Obama and Vice President Biden, which is suspicious because the company's vice president for policy is married to the overseer of President Obama's weatherization program, Cathy Zoi. Amazingly, Serious Materials was the only "green" window company to receive some recent tax credits from the federal government.

Ms. Zoi may want to seek some legal counsel.
