Steve Bullock wrote a letter that was used to solicit Chinese investment in a club for the megawealthy through the controversial EB-5 visa program.

The letter from Bullock, Montana’s Democratic governor since 2013, is part of a Chinese document obtained by the Washington Examiner pitching an investment opportunity in the Yellowstone Club, a private ski resort for the megawealthy outside of Yellowstone National Park in southwestern Montana.

Membership at the elite club reportedly requires owning property on the resort grounds (ranging from condos to ranches and custom homes anywhere from $3 million to more than $20 million) and an annual membership fee of around $36,000. High-profile members include Bill and Melinda Gates, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and Justin Timberlake.

CrossHarbor Capital Partners took ownership of the Yellowstone Club in 2009 and has since utilized EB-5 investment visas to expand the property...

...Bullock wrote, “Although no business endeavor comes without risk, I believe that the EB-5 Program can be executed successfully in Montana to deliver high-quality projects that are compatible with our state’s strengths and economic development goals...

My company has supplied a few projects in the YS Club. Big timbers mostly. The whole place has a weird vibe to it. Have not seen any china dudes.

Doesn't Greg Lemond have a place in the "club"? I remember reading he was suing the developer after he reneged on a deal he agreed to with Lemond. I think Lemond got or was asking for 40 million from what I recall and it was settled.

I did sell a bunch of wood to a Chinese dude in Aspen 25 years ago. He was the "owner" of Xiamen Cigarette Factory who partnered with RJR. Dude had a couple of Ferrari's soft tops and would drive around with the top down in the winter, chain smoking playing american 60's music.

I'm not sure if Lemond is up there or not. I know they have had numerous financial scandals up there.
