I knew that this rat bastard was a crook. The FBI seemed to know this rat bastard was a crook. Why the hell did they stop investigating this rat bastard? I think he’s rotting in hell, but that’s very little consolation for his theft of the treasury and other shenanigans.
Anything with that rat bastard’s name on it should be renamed now.
FBI Saw Dark Side of Rep. John MurthaAgency Suspected Lawmaker in Scheme Funneling Funds to Benefit Friends, Ex-Staffers By Paul Singer Roll Call Staff Oct. 25, 2011, MidnightDouglas Graham/CQ Roll Call File PhotoNeither Rep. John Murtha nor anybody from KSA Consulting was ever charged with a crime, and it is unclear what happened to the FBI’s investigation. imagePrint imageEmail imageReprints o o o Text sizeRelated Content Companies Follow Murtha’s Earmark Trail DOJ Says Murtha Earmark Money Was Illicitly Distributed Firm Tied to Murtha Earmarks Goes Dark PMA Founder Magliocchetti Sentenced Cleland Leaves Disability GroupLast week’s release of FBI documents finally put in writing what nobody had ever said on the record: The FBI suspected that former Rep. John Murtha D-Pa. and lobbyists close to him were running a scheme to funnel earmarks to sham companies and nonprofits to benefit the lawmaker’s friends and former staffers.Bits and pieces of this story were kicked around for years before Murtha died in February 2010. The Los Angeles Times, Roll Call, the Washington Post and others had documented the odd appearance of earmarks for tiny defense contractors that just happened to open an office in western Pennsylvania and just happened to hire one of the lobbying firms close to Murtha and just happened to begin making campaign donations to Murtha and other Members of Congress close to him.
From Ace of Spades:
Confirmed: Dirty, Corrupt Congressman Who Everyone Suspected Was Dirty and Corrupt Was In Fact Dirty and Corrupt
Jack Murtha is now dead (and may Hell take him) but his legacy of graft lives on.
Last week’s release of FBI documents finally put in writing what nobody had ever said on the record: The FBI suspected that former Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) and lobbyists close to him were running a scheme to funnel earmarks to sham companies and nonprofits to benefit the lawmaker’s friends and former staffers.
The corruption didn’t die with Murtha, because his longtime staffer Mark Critz took over the graft position. And it seems extraordinarily unlikely that he could have worked so long for the corrupt Congressman without knowing about the scheme to divert taxpayer money to friends of Murtha’s (who would then kick Murtha back his vig).
Furthermore, we need to know why the FBI opened, but then closed, so many investigations into this bloated shitbag of theft.
