John, Abscam unindited co-conspirator, Murtha (D-PA) is at it again. Murtha's Defense Earmarks Draw Questions is another example of the reason the Tea Parties are being held across the country. Rep. Murtha has come to exemplify the meaning of Irresponsible Politicians. He is not accountable to the people of Pennsylvania he represents. Rather he is responsible to those who contribute large sums to his re-election campaign.
As head of a powerful Defense committee, Murtha controls hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, reports CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson. And he's not shy about directing money to those who give generously to his election campaigns [Emphasis Mine].
Those taxpayer dollars are our money, but it appears for Rep John Murtha our money is to be used to reward those who made cash contributions to Rep Murtha. These contributions result in Earmarks. That sounds a lot like a legal Political Bribe.
Taxpayer watchdogs may not like how it looks, but it's not against the law unless donations were required in order to receive the earmarks. Looking for evidence of wrongdoing, the FBI has recently raided offices of two other companies linked to Murtha.
Can we really be expected to believe this is the result of Responsible Government Representation?
