It gets crazier and crazier. What the hell is GM trying to hide? General Motors has asked the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to prevent public tracking of their corporate private jet. GM spokesman Greg Martin declined to comment on why GM made the request to the FAA, though what better way to reload Congress’s guns.
This comes on the heels of GM’s CEO, Rick Wagoner, being lambasted by U.S. lawmakers for flying the jet to Washington in order to ask for public funds of $25 billion in aid from the federal government. After lawmakers took the luxury-jet-setting-exec to task, the critical-quips flew through the air. “Couldn’t you have downgraded to first class or something, or jet-pooled?” Rep. Gary Ackerman asked at the hearing held by the U.S. House Financial Services Committee. It’s still up in the air (no pun intended) if Ford and Chrysler made a similar request to the FAA to keep their luxury jet where-a-bouts a secret.
