In the November 2006 election, the voters demanded congressional ethics reform. And so, the newly appointed chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is now duly in charge of regulating the ethical behavior of her colleagues. But for many years, Feinstein has been beset by her own ethical conflict of interest, say congressional ethics experts.
As chairperson and ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee (MILCON) from 2001 through the end of 2005, Feinstein supervised the appropriation of billions of dollars a year for specific military construction projects. Two defense contractors whose interests were largely controlled by her husband, financier Richard C. Blum, benefited from decisions made by Feinstein as leader of this powerful subcommittee.

Silly conservative...Ethics Reform is for Republicans!
The MSM will cover this turd up...like all of the other RAT scandals.
Good Grief - This resignation happened in January??? Thank you, MSM, for helping Mrs. Feinstein to resign "quietly" - we wouldn't want to upset her out here in Peasant Land. If this is all designed to help me lose any remaining faith in my Govt., and Independent Press...they're succeeding.
>The MSM will cover this ---- up....like all of the other RAT scandals.<
They are doing a good job of it so far. Even the talk shows are silent, at least the ones I've listened to.
As another sleight of hand, Pelosi's off to Syria for "talks" with the fellow who assassinated Lebonan's president; and Condi is telling Omert to pull back further from the Golan Hts! In my opinion, none of them should be let out of the country! And Feinstein should be imprisoned; forced to pay the government back some of her "profit" as punishment.
Can't expect the MSM to act in an objective, unbiased manner. If you want this story to get out, you've got to work to get it out.
Can't the N Cal FReepers Freep her? I would luv it if we bombarded every talk show & newspaper with this & never let up. Come On gang. We are up to this task. If not, are we ever going to make a stand on anything.
This is your corrupt "Two-Party Cartel". Seriously, we should never place a vote for this group of frauds that are in Washington.
The first thing out of Pelosi's piehole when they won the majority was "We will be the most ethical Congress in history."
Anyone who has been paying attention at all knew what that meant...just the opposite. The disgusting Liar Media has fallen right in line. Sandy Berger, Harry Reid, Klintons, Jefferson, Feinswine, on and on....corrupt and hypocritical to the core.
The Mediots will of course inform us of the discretions, once or twice, but they will not dwell, and dwell, and dwell upon them month after month after month, like they will for Repubs who mess up.
Brainwashing is selective. That is their out.
"Well, you can't say we didn't report it. We did."
CYA phonies and cowards.
totally agree with you and am really spooked by silence about Fraudstein's quitting Senate subcommittee under profiteering cloud on even Drudge!!! FreeRepublic alarmed me by pulling the thread two days running and hope this thread stays in place!! Where are the free speech rights when major news is only appearing on WorldNetDaily and a few small CA rags??
We have to keep this alive by daily contacting the websites that have some news repor ting merit!! I hope the Washington Times carries the Peter Blume report very soon!
that's Peter Byrne not Blume!!
When did she resign?? 06 or january of 07??
2007 - just a minor little subcommittee that oversees huge federal contracts that she manages to secure for hubby's businesses.
