The interesting thing about this report is that Fox News reporter John Roberts says that if the wood for the fret boards that Gibson imported had been a finished piece, having been manufactured in India, it would have been completely legal to import. But Gibson wanted to manufacture the fret boards here in America, which raises the question if this raid was about sending more American manufacturing jobs overseas from a company that is run by a Republican:
UPDATE (Dan): Gibson’s CEO Henry Juszkiewicz seems convinced there is indeed a political motive behind the feds’ recent raid of his company: “There’s no doubt we’re being persecuted.”
UPDATE #2 (Dan): Well, isn’t this interesting: Looks like Juszkiewicz will be in attendance tomorrow for Obama’s jobs speech. I wonder if Obama will have Richard Trumka and Jimmy Hoffa usher him to his seat.
