"We have a CPA who does all our reports and disclosures and we do everything by the book. In 32 years that I've been in Congress not one of my disclosures has been questioned or reviewed. We play by the rules in both fund-raising and reporting,"

According to CREW, no friend to Republicans, you are NOT playing by the rules Ed.

It is inscrutable after ABSCAM and 32 years in Congress, there have been NO questions and NO reviews of Murtha's fund-raising or reporting.

WHY is that?
Could it be the degree of "influence" Murtha peddles?
Perhaps it is the trading of favors for campaign cash?

Let's have an investigation. If Murtha is as sqeaky clean as good old Ed claims, then it should be no problem to show off their impeccable record keeping.

From what I understand, Murtha's one of the most venal and corrupt people in congress. Let the investigation proceed and let's put this Benedict Arnold where he deserves....in the Warden's Bed & Breakfast.

GOP Opponent Asks DOJ for Murtha Probe
By John Bresnahan
Roll Call Staff
September 27, 2006

A Republican challenger to Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) has asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Murtha traded appropriations earmarks for hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the clients of lobbying firms with close ties to the veteran lawmaker, including one where his brother works.

"We have a CPA who does all our reports and disclosures and we do everything by the book.

Thanks for the ping Justa.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think there are many people in federal prisons convicted of white collar crimes that also had CPA's, and many of those CPA's worked for law breakers that had much larger bank accounts than Murtha.

If I was Murtha's CPA I would be getting very nervous.

Irey based her request on the Ethics Reform Act of 1989, asking for a probe into whether Murtha accepted "campaign contributions in exchange for placing earmarked appropriations into legislation he is largely responsible for drafting and pushing to passage."

ABSCAM

If he'd only kept his mouth shut about Iraq none of this would be happening now.

I don't know who his political adviser is, but the DNC REALLY needs to hire him.
