They're using that as the line of reasoning. As if he got elected to office, set out to dismantle this loan just to bone 38 Studios while twirling his villain mustache and counting his political capital. I was reading on here that these guys were having problem making payroll, let alone meeting other obligations and that was before the governor even got involved. They burned through a shitload of money and their main product was a failure. Employing 375 people, buying another studio and working on an MMO simultaneously will do that. They went big, they failed big. There's a reason most successful startups in this industry go small and grow incrementally.
