    Nothing new here- - - -graft and corruption, nepotism, and outright theft is part of the political scene, and always has been. The other California witch in the senate, swine-stein- - - -didn't she sponsor some sort of tax shelter that protected her husband's business? Something about tax exemptions for pineapple growers, as I recall. Guess what hubby does?

    That ol' witch Nancy Pelosi has been up to her eyeballs in sponsoring legislation favorable to her and her husband's business and stock holdings for years.

    I was never able to prove it but didn't the LBJ Construction Co. build a lot of the bases in Nam, I know the rumor has been around a long time.

    And all of this is surprising, how? Not just this deal, but all the ones where politicians do well...

    Surprising? No. That many former and current politicians should become statesmen* is a fact.

    *statesman- n. a politician that is no longer among the living.

    Look what they did to Martha Stewart and Skooter Libby. They were only guilty of imperfect memories under repetitious interrogation.

    It's legal because they write the laws and exempt themselves from it. How do you think these Senators get to be multi-millionaires after serving, when before they came to congress they were not? They have inside knowledge of government contracts and legislation that will benefit themselves.

    While the pensions aren't exactly lavish, those don't hurt either.
