Is Dianne Feinstein an Ethics Violator?

Violations Force Feinstein Military Committee Resignation

Corruption Chronicles.
Excerpt:

During her six years as chair and ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Senator Dianne Feinstein annually supervised the appropriation of billions of dollars for specific military construction projects. The San Francisco lawmaker supervised her own staff of military construction experts and she lobbied Pentagon officials to support her favorite projects.

She wielded quite a bit of power and succeeded in steering hundreds of billions of dollars in military contracts to companies partially owned by her wealthy husband, Richard Blum. One company alone earned $792 million from military construction and environmental cleanup projects approved by Feinstein’s committee and another $759 million.

The blatant ethics violation and obvious conflict of interest was first exposed earlier this year by a weekly Northern California publication. The story details how Feinstein voted over the years for appropriations that enriched her husband’s firms and that her top legal advisor also happens to be one of her husband’s longtime business partners; in other words, a financial beneficiary of the senator’s decisions.

HLs Take:
If this is true, then Feinstein is just another hypocrite politician just as bad as the Republicans. Even if it’s not true the time has come to oust this Republican lite, out of the Democratic party for good. We need a better Senator from California. Martin Sheen should run, he would win if he did. If he was in there he would be doing everything he could to stop Bush and war. I guess Marty just has too much ethics for Politics.


Judith Nathan, Or Bill Clinton

Who Would You Rather Have Sit in on a Cabinet Meeting?

Talk Left.com
Excerpt:
Rudy Giuliani says his wife Judith Nathan would be welcome to sit in on cabinet and policy meetings if he were elected President.

How typical of his absolute arrogance.

If Hillary gets elected, we'd have Bill Clinton either sitting in on meetings or being Ambassador to the world.

Hillary Clinton says many people want her to appoint her husband secretary of State if she wins. Such nepotism was outlawed after John Kennedy made his brother Bobby attorney general, she noted at the fundraiser.

Then she added, to huge cheers, “But I sure can make him ambassador to the world!” That is a role the former president already is playing, mostly through the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation.

How is this even a close call?
