John Murtha has sent truckloads of our tax dollars to his district and received satchels of campaign cash in return. It's not hard to imagine that some badness has happened in the middle of that. It looks like we might find out.
Federal agents raided two small Pennsylvania defense contractors that were given millions of dollars in federal funding by Rep. John Murtha, chairman of the defense appropriations committee and one of the most powerful men in Congress.
Kuchera Industries and Kuchera Defense Systems shut down for the day after the raid by officers from the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and an Internal Revenue Service criminal unit.
In a statement Thursday night, the Pittsburgh U.S. attorney confirmed that offices in Windber, Johnstown and Summerhill were raided "as part of an ongoing investigation." A second federal official said that ties to lawmakers would be examined as part of the probe.
Oh please do federal official, please do. I would do a happy dance if they could pin some corruption on that disgraceful swine. Patrick Casey at American Thinker has a good look at the many webs of cash flow surrounding the Lummox. h/t Glenn.
