Pelosi Democrats Drop Murtha Ethics Investigation

Here is a classic example of hypocrisy in the Democratic Party. There is a mountain of evidence that Rep. Jack Murtha was involved in political corruption (and other Democrats by the way) with the lobbying of the PMA Group ran by Paul Magliocchetti.

More than 100 House members secured earmarks in a major spending bill for clients of a single lobbying firm -- The PMA Group -- known for its close ties to John P. Murtha, the congressman in charge of Pentagon appropriations.

"It shows you how good they were," said Keith Ashdown, chief investigator at the watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense. "The sheer coordination of that would take an army to finish."

PMA's offices have been raided, and the firm closed its political action committee last week amid reports that the FBI is investigating possibly illegal campaign contributions to Murtha and other lawmakers.

No matter what the outcome of the federal investigation, PMA's earmark success illustrates how a well-connected lobbying firm operates on Capitol Hill. And earmark accountability rules imposed by the Democrats in 2007 make it possible to see how extensively PMA worked the Hill for its clients.

In the spending bill managed by Murtha, the fiscal 2008 Defense appropriation, 104 House members got earmarks for projects sought by PMA clients, according to Congressional Quarterly's analysis of a database constructed by Ashdown's group.

So check this out: the key Congressman linked to the PMA Group’s lobbying corruption is Jack Murtha the Democrat from Pennsylvania.

This is the same Jack Murtha that called American Marines cold blooded killers at the so-called Haditha Massacre. The last time I checked all but two of the Marines accused of wrong doing have been totally exonerated. The highest ranking officer in the incident Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani had his charges initially dropped; however the now Leftist controlled U.S. government is still seeking validation and has called for a dismissal of the three-judge dismissal in order for the entire panel of nine judges to re-hear the case. The final accused Haditha Marine is Staff Sergeant Frank D. Wuterich and his fate awaits prosecution persecution of Lt. Col. Chessani.

This same Jack Murtha implicated in the Abscam FBI investigations in which a fake Arab was bribing politicians to put them in the pocket of the fake Arab. This indicates that Murtha is no rookie when it comes to money and political corruption.

Yet the Democratic Party continues to prop up Rep. Jack Murtha. It is cosmically unbelievable. Why isn’t President Obama stepping in to chastise Murtha and call for Congress to proceed with an ethics investigation? The reason is an ethics investigation would gut the House of Representatives led by liar Pelosi of the Democratic Party. That is how many Democrats that also are connected to the lobbying efforts of the PMA Group and Jack Murtha.
