Report: Kay Hagan’s husband company received stimulus money

A manufacturing company co-owned by the husband of U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan received nearly $390,000 in grants and tax credits from the 2009 stimulus, according to a report from Politico.

Chip Hagan is a co-owner of JDC Manufacturing, which received the stimulus grants and credits to help pay for work at a facility in Reidsville, Politico reported.

A Hagan spokeswoman said the senator did not help her husband’s company obtain the grants, but told Politico that Hagan consulted with an ethics attorney on the issue.

Politico also reported that Hagan challenger Thom Tillis supported a measure to let North Carolina participate in the federal renewable energy tax credit program. A bank Tillis owns stock in received credits for some of its projects, the report said. Tillis denied any improper involvement.
