If this report is true, then what an odd life choice to make (via Instapundit):


Feinstein Resigns

Senator exits MILCON following Metro exposé, vet-care scandal
By Peter Byrne

SEN. Dianne Feinstein has resigned from the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee. As previously and extensively reviewed in these pages, Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum's ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.

As MILCON leader, Feinstein relished the details of military construction, even micromanaging one project at the level of its sewer design. She regularly took junkets to military bases around the world to inspect construction projects, some of which were contracted to her husband's companies, Perini Corp. and URS Corp.

Two things. First, I question the timing. HA! I've been looking forward for a chance to say that (My previous post on the subject may be found here).

Second, read on.

You'll note that the author of the Metro piece has a bit of the ol' BDS going on, there: but that's OK. I'm happy to be bipartisan when it comes to questioning Democratic Senators, particularly ones with relevant oversight over Veterans' Affairs. If Mr. Byrne is incapable of condemning a liberal without trying to tie him or her to the Bush Administration, well, that still puts him a step above his compadres, who cannot condemn fellow liberals (or Democrats not named Lieberman) at all, at all. So, in the spirit of camaraderie, I hereby officially join in his call to have Senator Feinstein resign from the Senate.

And, judging from my very quick perusal of the California Constitution, I believe that if asked, so would Gov Schwarzenegger*.

*Which is why she won't, of course. And why her colleagues and fellow-Party members won't do anything about this. And why she'll be able to just walk away.

(Shrug) Well, it's their souls, not mine.

to fully investigate this issue? I'd laugh if it weren't so very sad as to the state of our media.

Retire Lindsey Graham. Support Thomas Ravenel for Senate 2008

but Feinstein's probably one of the more responsible members of the Childish Party possible to head a military related committee, so I'm not prepared to say this is a positive developement, all things considered

But I think her IQ is ... well, it's fitting that she represents Rio Linda. The Senator is not very bright.

And she expects us to believe that she had no $$$$ interest in this?
To laugh at the pitiful dhimmiecrats.

Everyone send a quick e-mail to some cable hosts (i.e. OReilly, Hannity, Glenn Beck, etc.) and see if we can't get a few calls for her to step down. She won't step down, but maybe that will get it a bit more press. With all of the dems trying to make up a scandal with Bush, they should look at their own party to find an actual scandal.

I'm sure some more political games of 'gotcha' should
lift the spirits of wounded veterans. Keep up
the good work!

Karl

Oh please ...

I just love it that when Democrats play these games, it's just tough politics, but when Republicans reciprocate some idiot comes over and starts preaching about us taking the high road.

It's like coming to a boxing match and having the referee chide you for punching below the belt while completely ignoring the knife in your opponent's hand.

George W. Bush: He's A Folder ... Not A Fighter.

...and, by the way? We let liberals post here; but if you don't have the guts to be honest about your political leanings, we see no reason to keep you around. Bye-bye.

At any rate, presuming the conventional wisdom re our military's politicial leanings is correct, wounded veterans may indeed take some pleasure in watching a Democratic Senator get savaged by someone from her own progressive base. You really should have read the whole article that I linked to.

coming from the Dems during our ME adventures, too. The mind boggles.

Talk about connections, crimes and corruption are only crimes and corruption upon careful selection. We definitely have a split brain problem here with liberals and if it's true George Soros invested in said company will the brains mysteriously heal and corruption disappear?

I didn't see this on the front page of the LA Times. No one was chatting about it in outraged tones while I was standing in line at Starbucks. Matt Lauer wasn't invading DiFi's space this morning on The Today Show. Heck, Hal Fishman didn't even interrupt his nightly on-air slumber at KTLA-TV to raise an eyebrow.

Nope. Nothing happening here in CA as far as I can tell.

Just think . . . DiFi is the *smart* one of my state's two senators.

Feinstien got payed off just like Congressman COld Cash from Louisianna. Pathetic.

Kyoto Now! (Because only pollution from the US hurts the planet)

Hard to imagine that she could so blatantly do this and not have anything arise from it?

Am I missing something here or is this exactly the corruption in congress that "is" acted on?
