About a month ago, Gibson guitar was raided by the Obama Justice Department for using “illegal wood.”
Federal agents swooped in on Gibson Guitar Wednesday, raiding factories and offices in Memphis and Nashville, seizing several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars. The Feds are keeping mum, but in a statement yesterday Gibson’s chairman and CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, defended his company’s manufacturing policies, accusing the Justice Department of bullying the company. “The wood the government seized Wednesday is from a Forest Stewardship Council certified supplier,” he said, suggesting the Feds are using the aggressive enforcement of overly broad laws to make the company cry uncle.
The Obama Adminstration has been accused of raiding the U.S. based company for political purposes since the company has donated to republicans in the past rather than democrats.
Now, country music legend Charlie Daniels is coming to Gibson’s defense, saying the raid, “just didn’t make any sense,” and that the Obama Adminstration needs to stop messing with American companies.
