Senator Dianne Feinstein - Corrupt Democrat
California Senator Dianne Feinstein abruptly stepped down from the Military Construction Appropriations Subcommittee this week, hoping to stem the tide of questions surfacing about the role she has played in defense contracts won by her husband, Richard Blum. An investigation pursued by the liberal California press and funded by The Nation magazine’s investigative fund revealed that a number of defense contracts awarded to Blum’s companies have interesting links to appropriations actions made during Feinstein’s term on the committee.
There are some noteworthy nuggets in the reporting that cannot simply be shrugged off. In March 2003, after she asked the Pentagon about anti-terrorism protection on Army bases, Blum’s company, URS, won a $600-million contract to provide Army bases with anti-terror-protection services. Additionally Feinstein inquired as to when money would be spent on a maintenance facility for the C-17 Globemasters at Hickam Air Base in Hawaii. URS later announced a $42-million contract to build it. In 2005, the committee approved funds to reinforce roofs at military stations in Iraq, and in October of that year, another Blum company got a $185-million contract to perform the work.(LINK)
I have yet to see the outrage from the left about this. $785 million in contracts were awarded to her husband's company. Silly me, it has to top $790 million for Democrats to consider it corrupt.
