FBI raided lobbying firm linked to Murtha -- WSJ
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation has raided a defense-related lobbying firm with ties to Rep. John Murtha, D-Penn., according to a report late Tuesday in the online edition of The Wall Street Journal. Arlington, Va.-based PMA Group turned over materials to FBI agents who arrived at its offices in November, according to the report. PMA Group was founded by a former top aide on a defense appropriations subcommittee chaired by Murtha, the report said. A Murtha spokesman quoted in the report said the congressman is not under investigation, adding that, "no one is suggesting that Jack Murtha has anything to do with this, period." PMA Group is one of three firms linked to Murtha that have been raided in the past three months, according to the Journal report
Although the FBI is not my favorite Federal agency I have to admit a growing admiration for their Intestinal fortitude.
In view of the poor record of other federal agencies, SEC, Congress, Federal Reserve, the FBI is setting an exemplary example.
In the past the FBI has been way behind in Internet methods of investigation,
my sources tell me they are making up for lost time and distinguishing them selves
in WWW investigations.
I seldom gush, but I am most impressed with the FBI's integrity and going after
the Banks and Lobbyists.
The tax payer may have a shinning knight in this financial mess after all.
