Hayes Lemmerz International Inc is a global company with plants located worldwide producing automotive and commercial highway wheels and powertrain components.  Hayes Lemmerz filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May 11, 2009 under the leadership of Chairman and CEO Curtis J. Clawson (Curt Clawson).  Court-driven toward a restructured and reorganized company, Mr Clawson agreed with its secured creditors that its lenders would gain “substantially all of the equity.”  Hence, common stockholder Mr. Kevin Aihara had “lost everything.”

From just a business perspective, tea partier conservative Mr. Bryon Donalds has endorsed Mr. Clawson with the words, “What we need in Washington are people who have outside experience, real leadership, and he provides that.”

But what haven’t been addressed are Tea Party principles, conservatism, and fiscal responsibility.  On the fiscal side null and void total common stock equity represents fiscal irresponsibility on behalf of Mr. Clawson for the common stockholder.  Apparently, there was no envisioned restructuring plan for the common stockholder.

Yet still existing intact, Hayes Lemmerz International Inc is now a division of Iochpe-Maxion, a Brazilian company, which merged with Hayes Lemmerz for the price tag of $725 Million.

An offshoot of this reorganization and merger was a new company called Maxion Wheels, which is now headed by the previous COO of Hayes Lemmerz, Fred Bentley.

An outsider is not the right term for Mr. Curtis J. Clawson.  A better term would be an insider who knows the caprices of the investment banking world.  And one of his characteristics would be a man of worldly experience who would thrive in Washington in the political funding and lobbying and special interest categories – to take from the common to give to the wealthy. For a characteristic as a conservative would not be one of his finer three-point shots.
