Corruption In Defense Contracts

-- by Dave Johnson

Talking Points Memo has been writing about defense contract scandals involving Congressman "Duke" Cunningham apparently receiving big-money-equivalent favors in exchange for no-bid big-money defense contracts. TPM writes,

"This isn't just a Duke Cunningham scandal. It's a serious defense contracting scandal."
Perhaps Bush's appoinment of L. Jean Lewis as chief of staff in the traditionally nonpartisan Defense Department’s inspector general office has something to do with this. Yep, a "conservative movement" operative in charge of oversight of defense contracts.

And here we are with defense contract corruption everywhere you look.
