Finallly: IBD mentions DiFi scandal
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, May 03, 2007

After discussing Harry Reid's ethics problems, Investors Business Daily talks about Sen. Feinstein's:
But Reid's take is small potatoes compared with the wheeling and dealing of another leading Senate Democrat, Rules Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein of California. In her six years as ranking Democrat on the Senate Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies subcommittee, she "may have directed more than $1 billion to companies controlled by her husband," according to American Conservative Union head David Keene, writing in the Hill, a Washington newspaper, on Monday.

URS and Perini Corp., under the control of Feinstein's husband, Richard Blum, apparently got more than $1.5 billion in government business largely from Feinstein's subcommittee.

"Interestingly, she left the subcommittee in late 2005 at about the same time her husband sold his stake in both companies," quips Keene. The sale appears to have increased the combined net worth of the power couple by 25%, to a total in excess of $40 million.

Is the SEC — not to mention another SEC, the Senate Ethics Committee — allergic to investigating Democrats?
How about it?

This is a good example of the right wing smear media in action. How dare they attempt such a thing on such a fine, upstanding public servent like Dianne Feinstein.

IBD is probably in the pockets of the NRA.

There’s an awful lot of tap-dancing going on from her office, mostly picking nits at the charges, but the major one sticks: her chief of staff was provided with information about which contracts her husbands firm were bidding on/had. The working assumption is that she knew, and only testimony to the contrary by the parties involved -under oath- is going to convice me otherwise. She should have recused herself from votes on those issues. She recused herself exactly zero times in her entire tenure.
