More democrat hypocrisy – Energy Secty Chu testified he does not own car but his wife owns gas guzzling BMW

In a piece of video that shot across the Internet Thursday like a sports car doing zero-to-60 in four seconds, Energy  Secretary Stephen Chu told the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power that he  does not own a car. But The Daily Caller has confirmed that Chu’s wife does — and it’s quite an automobile.

There’s no Chevy Volt in the Chu household’s driveway. TheDC has  obtained motor vehicle registration records showing that Jean Chu  (née Fetter) is the owner of a 2002 BMW 325i, a sports sedan with a  gas-guzzling 6-cylinder engine.

And its engine requires premium gasoline. AAAdetermined on Thursday that the average U.S. price for  that grade of fuel was $4.03 per gallon.
