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.
