Solar scams are happening all over America

If Freeholders Richard Vohden and Phil Crabb were not such stubborn old men, they would realize that they are only a small part of a nationwide group of victims of taxpayer-supported solar programs -- "a no brainer" as Crabb called it -- that turned out to be an old fashioned scam.  It is happening all over. 

What is it about Vohden and Crabb that leads them to want to own the solar scam?  Too proud to admit they made a mistake?  Or are they protecting someone?
