On the day the new Congress convened this year, Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband's real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms….Mrs. Feinstein's intervention on behalf of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was unusual: the California Democrat isn't a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs with jurisdiction over FDIC; and the agency is supposed to operate from money it raises from bank-paid insurance payments - not direct federal dollars….Mrs. Feinstein first offered Oct. 30 to help the FDIC secure money for its effort to stem the rise of home foreclosures. Her letter was sent just days before the agency determined that CB Richard Ellis Group (CBRE) - the commercial real estate firm that her husband Richard Blum heads as board chairman - had won the competitive bidding for a contract to sell foreclosed properties that FDIC had inherited from failed banks….Senator's husband cashes in on crisis, Chuck Neubauer, The Washington Times, 4/21/09

It’s one of the finest articles yet on the Democrat Culture of Corruption.
The French say les moines parlent comme l’abbé chante. The chief of this band of outlaws says “yes, we can!”. Apparently, this has been interpreted as a call to arms by every gangster in politics.
Haven’t heard about this? Hey, you’re an American, entitled to a pack of lies from every news program.
