TUNICA, Miss. (AP) - Four years ago, a startup car company announced big plans for the Mississippi Delta. With money from foreign investors and other sources, GreenTech Automotive Inc. would build a massive plant for energy-efficient cars, bringing thousands of jobs to the area.

It seemed like a win for everyone. Foreign investors would get the opportunity to stay in the U.S. An impoverished area would get jobs. Mississippi would generate tax revenues. Politicians could tout job creation.

But today, the place where the plant was to be remains mostly vacant. The Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating GreenTech, and the probe is reverberating well beyond Mississippi's borders. It's brought scrutiny to Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe and to the company run by Tony Rodham, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's brother.
