Contractors with ties to Murtha Raided

John Murtha, the Democrat Representative from Pennsylvania, is back on the hot seat.  Murtha is infamous for having drawn fire for being caught on FBI tape talking about taking bribes way back during ABSCAM and currently facing a lawsuit for having declared a number of marines “guilty of cold blooded murder” who were later cleared.

January 22nd the FBI, IRS and DOD raided the offices and homes of a Murtha crony company called Kuchera. Murtha has earmarked 100 million dollars worth of contracts to Kuchera while employees of Kuchera have given 65,000 dollars to Murtha’s re-election funds.

  1. Good thing this kind of scam is divulged. Even here in Asia, a lot of contracts are awarded to companies who promises to support the campaign of the greedy officials.
