    Feinstein Leaves Senate Defense Panel Amid Controversy

    (CNSNews.com) - Government watchdog groups want more answers as to why Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) stepped down from a military appropriations subcommittee at a time questions were being asked billions of dollars in federal defense contracts going to her husband's companies.

    Feinstein resigned her post as chairwoman of the Senate Subcommittee on Military Construction Appropriations last week.

    The decision came less than two months after Metro Newspapers, a group of alternative weekly papers in northern California, detailed the number of defense contracts awarded to Perini Corp. and URS Corp., both of which her husband, Richard C. Blum, has ownership, according to the newspapers.

    Wonder if the Halliburton-Hatin'-Hippies will start having a hissy-fit & calling Feinstein a war-profiteer......

    Sorry, had a dream of honesty & consistency from them, but then I remembered, they're democrats, which means the drive-by-media will try and hide this story.

    It appears the corrupt old media is already in full cover up mode. The pajama guys will eventually smoke 'em out.
