Get your damned gubmit out of Curt Schilling’s Galtian entrepreneurship!
Providence, R.I. game developer 38 Studios knew it was in dire straits before it moved the company from Massachusetts to the Ocean State, according to documents filed in Rhode Island Superior Court.
Rhode Island Economic Development Corp. attorney Max Wistow said there was “crushing evidence” that shows that the former Red Sox Ace Curt Schilling and others at the company covered up financial information, the Providence Journal reports.
Officials from the state of Rhode Island filed a lawsuit against Curt Schilling, other lawyers and executives at the failed video game company, and the former head of the state’s Economic Development Corp., saying they misled the state into approving a $75 million state-backed loan to the company, according to the Providence Journal. According to documents filed with the court, 38 Studios needed more than $75 million from the state in order to proceed.
But let’s be clear, the money he received from Rhode Island taxpayers to prop up his failing business wasn’t a handout:
And of course Schilling is also a longtime loud-mouthed, ultra-conservative, rich Tea Party moron from way back who regularly bemoans that the government takes money that he could be using to create jobs. “I’m not looking, never have been, for handouts,” he told Sean Hannity in March.
