I'm shocked, shocked I tell you. Say it ain't so.......

A veteran California senator has resigned as chair of a powerful military construction committee after reports that for years she abused her position to award her husband’s companies billions of dollars in government contracts.

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.

No wonder Feinstein, a former San Francisco mayor elected to the U.S. Senate in 1992, is among the wealthiest members of congress. Last year she ranked eighth with a net worth of $42.6 million, boosted by assets she holds with her husband. Most of them are companies that have made their fortune from the very government contracts she has granted them.

Perhaps Feinstein quit her coveted military construction committee position because she is taking her new role as the senate ethics police quite seriously. As the new chair of the Senate Rules Committee Feinstein, for years an ethics violator, is actually in charge of regulating her colleagues’ ethical behavior.

I brought this up a while ago and here are some of the responses... <blockquote><font class="small">Quote wolfdancer:</font><hr> Q, there are very few politicians that I admire....but Sen. Feinstein would get my vote for any office that she seeked...it's refreshing to know that we also elected a woman to the Senate,that was recognised at Stanford, as a future leader.
I'd be very surprised that a woman who once gave mouth to mouth resuscitation to a homeless person, spitting out the vomit in the process....would become financially corrupt, as Ed claims....
<hr /></blockquote> Yeah, I claimed it. I must have just made it all up on my own. <blockquote><font class="small">Quote gayle:</font><hr> Good post, Jack, and I agree. I watch a lot of live Congressional/Senate Committee hearings and she is definately one of the most well informed, intelligent, and genuine.

It is interestingm though, watching the Repubs, grab at straws. <hr /></blockquote> Grabbing at straws...Since when did $792 million become piddly like grabbing at straws? I guess when it is your guy (girl) corruption does not matter. Isn't it so clear why the left has such an infatuation with W? The one lady in office that they call "one of the most well informed, intelligent, and genuine" is as crooked as it gets. Yeah she is intelligent alright, she pulled the wool over your eyes pretty good.

Wait, one more... <blockquote><font class="small">Quote gayle:</font><hr> Steve, you are the last person here who could be saying that with a straight face. You have defended every incompetent, illegal action of your President, and your party.
<hr /></blockquote> Stand by your girl.

Well you get the point. Basically when I started that thread (Another crooked Dem) the left on the board decided to not address the crook, they did their same ole sad story about the horrible man called W.

You know, there was not too much about this in the news, I guess the left did not think this was newsworthy in their attempt to blind America for a chance at the White House.

I love the way these righties post this BS with no links. Where does this come from, the RNC? Or Faux News?

I have not heard a single thing about this.


The news seems to be all about the Republican Governor of Nevada, on the take, and refusing to resign.

However, nothing can top six years of Republicans in Complete control allowing George W.Bush to continue to lie, over and over, as our troops are dying, with the full support of the Republican Blank Check big spenders whose policies have caused the deaths of coming up on 3500 Americans, and who knows how many Iraqis, while losing money by the billions, and over a trillion in debt to China, all without a strategic plan, or any sign of accomplishment in over four years, and all having been proven to have been against the interests of the United States, and in the interests of the terrorists, AND at the same time, they have racked up more indictments, and shown more corruption, than any administration since Nixon.

Hence, the real question is, how does all that slip by the scrutiny of the nutty right? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Your mention of not hearing about it is exactly what we have been saying for years...The media's agenda is to only show the Reps in negative light. You heard very very little about Feinstein stepping down. This would have been way different if a Rep was caught doing it.

Also, the media gives us non-stories about Plame and the AG firings but nothing about one of their own lining her pockets with millions and millions of dollars. So much for doing the right thing. The only thing the Dems have not lied about was going behind W's back and trying to legislate defeat in Iraq.

If there was a conflict of interest, how did she ever get on that commitee in the first place? Was it a secret what her husband did for a living?

The fact is that she had NO POWER to award her husband or ANYONE else a sweet contract.
This is just another RNC talking point aimed to deflect attention from the present Govt scandals- and thats plural! Another storm in a teecup.

Its AMAZING that you feel confident in condeming a DEM on hearsay when you continualy bark about 'Presumption of Innocence' everytime another crooked Rep gets indicted?



Cheney GAVE Haliburton BILLIONS in contracts WITHOUT any bidding , ie a GIFT. Totally unlike the contracts won by F's husbands companies who had to win over the competition. Despite ripping the taxpayer off for almost a billion Haliburton still continue to get contracts!?
[ Why has there been no investigation into the obvious war profiteering by Cheney's last employer??]

Feinstein's Office Denies Conflict of Interest Charges
By Fred Lucas
CNSNews.com Staff Writer
April 04, 2007

(CNSNews.com) - Breaking nearly a week of silence, Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office Tuesday called allegations of a conflict of interest "nonsense" and said the California Democrat played no role in awarding military contracts that benefited companies owned by her husband.

It was reported last week that Feinstein no longer serves on a Senate subcommittee that oversaw military construction.

Earlier this year, Metro Newspapers accused Feinstein of a conflict of interest because the subcommittee had oversight of military contracts that often went to defense contractors owned by her husband, Richard Blum.

Feinstein's departure from the Senate subcommittee on military construction appropriation, also called MILCON, had nothing to do with reports in the Silicon Valley weeklies, said Feinstein spokesman Scott Gerber. In fact, she had already left the panel before the reports were published in late January.

"It is nonsense to suggest Sen. Feinstein resigned from the military construction subcommittee," Gerber told Cybercast News Service Tuesday. "At the beginning of Congress, following the historic shift in power, Sen. Feinstein had the opportunity to be the chair of the interior appropriations subcommittee."

This Senate panel offered her more ways to help the state of California, Gerber said, adding, "She is still on the full defense appropriations subcommittee."

Feinstein's service on the committee never presented a conflict of interest, Gerber said, because she didn't have the power to direct contracts to her husband's business or any other company.

"Sen. Feinstein never sought to award military contracts," Gerber said. "That procedure is done by the defense department.<hr /></blockquote>




As usual, you bought the propoganda because you want it to be true. It 'slipped by' because most people see it for what it is - pure speculation unsupported by any facts! Its slander. IMO Its typical Karl Rove. F resigns and they try to discredit her by spinning it with lies and allegations of wrong doing. They make up a story and the freeRepublic, Rush and then Fox do the dirty work. They spread lies. They present suspicions as fact. Allegations as proof of guilt.

Here is a REAL piece of journalism which totally destroys the allegations in the anti-Feinstein article.

Quote,
" The piece's author, a freelance journalist named Peter Byrne, alleges that, "Two defense contractors whose interests were largely controlled by her husband, financier Richard C. Blum, benefited from decisions made by Feinstein as leader" of the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Subcommittee (MILCON), part of the Senate Appropriatins Committee. To substantiate this allegation, he misrepresents or mischaracterizes both the transcripts of MILCON hearings, and information gleaned from the Web sites and press releases of the companies in question. He consistently distorts the plain meaning of words or omits key information and context in his effort to suggest scandal. But don't believe me -- read the rest for yourself, and see whether Byrne's central allegation -- "Two defense contractors whose interests were largely controlled by her husband, financier Richard C. Blum, benefited from decisions made by Feinstein as leader" of MILCON -- can be substantiated by the examples Byrne cites. Unlike the publication for which he wrote his article, I'm providing links to all the committee transcripts and press releases and other information I cite. I leave it to readers to draw their own conclusions.

Both sides are guilty of putting their own spin on everything. I doubt Ms. F. is as clean as she would want you to think. I doubt W. is as clean as he would want you to believe. I doubt there are more than a handful of politicians in Washington that aren't guilty of using their political power for some sort of personal gain.

That's right, nothing is more important than bashing the administration right now, in order to continue to keep the critical issue alive, which is the un-necessary, illegal, unconstitutional, immoral BUSH war in Iraq, and the resulting slaughter of our young troops throughout the summer, while the Iraq parliament, goes on vacation, and people in the green zone of Baghdad, now must wear protective helmets and chest gear to leave their locations and travel INSIDE the green zone.

Nothing is more important that to continue a discussion about continuing to remove Bush's power, when we have clear evidence of a president who suffers from severe delusions, illusions, misjudgements, mis-statements, and is batting zero on predictions, and a grandeous ego which has caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, through his incompetence and blase' attitude about the safety of our troops, so much so, that he sends them bacvk over and over without required rest, equipment, and training, and follows that behavior, by cutting funds for the Veterans Administration, which has completely failed our injured troops. Now, go right ahead and frame that as a partisan attack, and more of my BS partisan slanted information. More of my hatefilled rhetoric, but first, go to the nearest Veterans hospital, and talk to some people who have paid the price for Bush's War.

OMG, talk about spin!!!! If you can't see the idiocy in our people dying over there to give the Iraqi Government "Breathing Space" as the evil Rice puts it, and that bunch even considering a two month vacation, there's no hope for you, that's for sure. When eighty percent, (100% in some areas) of any countrymen want to kill our soldiers, it's time to stop sacrificing for their peace and prosperity. The minute they said that, our folks should have started packing pronto! With a few special forces teams, and some drones, we could continue to target and kill alQaeda, the very few who are there. Most of the violence is between Iraqis, in spite of how Rice tries to spin it. "Her statement is "We're not looking to leave Iraq" last week on Charlie Rose's program, confirms what most of us, spare the nutty 28% who still believe this bunch of lying SOB's, that Bush's true plan is to leave this mess for the next president to deal with.

Insider Information

The tale thickens with the appearance of Michael R. Klein, a top legal adviser to Feinstein and a long-time business partner of Blum's. The vice-chairman of Perini's board of directors, Klein was a partner in Wilmer, Cutler &amp; Pickering, a powerful law firm with close ties to the Democratic Party, for nearly 30 years. Klein and Blum co-own ASTAR Air Cargo, which has military contracts in Iraq and at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Klein also sits on the board of SRA International, a large defense contractor.

In an interview with this reporter in September, Klein stated that, beginning in 1997, he routinely informed Feinstein about specific federal projects coming before her in which Perini had a stake. The insider information, Klein said, was intended to help the senator avoid conflicts of interest. Although Klein's startling admission was intended to defuse the issue of Feinstein's conflict of interest, it had the effect of exacerbating it.

Klein said that he regularly gave Feinstein's chief of staff, Mark Kadesh, lists of Perini's current and upcoming contractual interests in federal legislation, so that the senator would not discuss, debate, vote on or participate in matters that could affect projects in which Perini was concerned. "Earmarks, you know, set asides, you name it, there was a system in place which on a regular basis I got notified, I notified her office and her office notified her," Klein said.

"We basically identified any bid that Perini was going for and checked to see whether it was the subject of already appropriated funds or funds yet to be appropriated, and if it was anything that the senator could not act on, her office was alerted and she did not act on it."

This is an extraordinary thing for Klein and the senator to do, since the detailed project proposals that the Pentagon sent to Feinstein's subcommittee for review do not usually name the firms already contracted to perform specific projects. Nor do defense officials typically identify, in MILCON hearings, which military construction contractors are eligible to bid on upcoming work.

In theory, Feinstein would not know the identity of any of the companies that stood to contractually benefit from her approval of specific items in the military construction budget--until Klein told her. <hr /></blockquote>

Or her HUSBAND could have told her!!!!!!
It seems she did everything ahe could to avoid a CoI, but at the the very least, what she did was out in the open and not sneaky like Calvert or the other Reps. The original article offered no proof of any wrongdoing by F and if you had read my link you would already know this.
