Agents Raid Defense Firm with
Murtha TiesBy Paul SingerJanuary 22, 2009, 5:58 p.m.
Media outlets in Pennsylvania are reporting that federal agents have raided the offices of a defense contractor with close ties to Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.).
The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat reported Thursday afternoon that Federal Bureau of Investigation and Internal Revenue Service agents raided the offices of Kuchera Defense Systems and Kuchera Industries in Windber, Pa.
Murtha has provided millions of dollars worth of earmarks for the company, and company employees have provided tens of thousands of dollars for his campaign.
Surprise? I think not.
It's no accident that Murtha made the top of CREW's list for most corrupt congressman.
As a matter of fact, when it comes to corruption, it seems that nobody tops him.
If there was a superhero of corrupt congressman, there is no doubt in my mind that Jihad Jack Murtha would be its model.
