Sen. Dianne Feinstein steered “billions of dollars in military contracts to companies partially owned by her wealthy husband, Richard Blum. One company alone earned $792 million from military construction and environmental cleanup projects approved by Feinstein’s committee and another $759 million.”
Yet she never even recused herself from voting on these. Even though she and her husband directly profited from it. Sickening, isn’t it?
Now she’s the new chair of the Senate Rules Committee and, laughingly, is in charge of regulating the ethical behavior of senators. Perhaps she wanted this new post so she could better block investigations into her conflicts of interests?
