Re: John Murtha (D-PA)

Murtha has once again been called out for his porky ways building an airport named after him that has virtually no traffic. It includes high dollar but unused radar equipment and our recent Porkulus Bill just paid to widen the runways. Even wWorse, his nephew is benefitting from the contracts. Google Murpha airport nephew and tell me you think we need to keep this guy in office.

Here's one link, but there are many:

John Murtha (D-PA)

John Murtha (D-PA), who was narrowly defeated as House Majority Leader, along with Jim Moran (D-VA) and Peter Visclosky (D-IN), have reportedly accepted $1,333,074 in campaign contributions from the PMA Group. PMA, a firm founded by a former Murtha worker, is believed to have walked away with $100.5 million in defense earmarks for their clients. Controversy is not new to Murtha; he was linked, but not indicted, in the 1980 Abscam scandal, which resulted in the convictions of a senator and six congressmen. He is currently facing ethics violations stemming from threats to block earmarks of other members for political purposes.
