Portland awards $11.5M energy contract to woke firm run by ex-convictThe city of Portland, Oregon, awarded a $11.5 million energy contract to a woke company run by a woman who has served prison time for defrauding companies and tax fraud, according to a report. She reportedly also fabricated key claims in her proposal, saying she’d “managed” a $30 million energy upgrade program in California — one that has never heard of her, the paper noted. Twitter / Shades of Green ForumRed-faced city officials insisted that they were oblivious to Woodley’s criminal history — announcing that the $11.5 million agreement with Diversifying Energy was being put on ice pending a review. Diversifying Energy was the recipient of a $12 million clean energy contract despite the creator’s checkered past. Diversifying EnergyWoodley told The Oregonian she “absolutely 100 percent” stood by her claim that she managed an energy company that has no record of her.
