These people are above the law. They’re untouchable, unreachable, unassailable, and they know it. They make muggers and thieves look honest by comparison.
From Don Surber:
You want to make the big bucks? Rent a congressman. Your return on your investment can be as high as $75 for every dollar invested.
Just ask the good folks at PMA Group, a lobbying firm. They sank $1,333,074 into the campaigns last year of 3 Democratic members of the House defense appropriations subcommittee and walked away with $100.5 million in defense earmarks for PMA clients
That means for every buck they spent, their clients got back $75.39. In less than 1 year.
Money is not the only object. The firm was founded by Paul Magliochetti, who worked for Murtha on the defense appropriations subcommittee. Richard Kaelin went from being Visclosky’s chief of staff to lobbying for PMA.
Culture of corruption? Congressional Democrats seem to have invented it.
