Sen. Dianne Feinstein should be thrown out of the Senate for this. But if they did that then they'd have to go after 99 others too I suppose.
It was recently learned that the United States has entered into a contract with one firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided that it no longer needs these buildings (many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country).
The sale of these properties will bring in billions of dollars and, with that, millions of dollars in commissions for the one Company that is in charge of handling the sale and negotiation of the new leases.
What makes this such a matter of concern is that the company that the Government has contracted with to conduct the sales (and the corresponding leases for the new locations of the displaced post offices) is owned by Richard Blum.
Does that name mean anything to you? Maybe it should re-phrased and say that the person who owns the company that is solely in charge of this multi-million-dollar transaction is Richard Blum the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein.
This is disgraceful. These turds in Washington are so low they can walk under a door. This is a perfect example of how political office has been twisted into a self-serving gravy train where the politicians extort, bribe, manipulate whatever they can for their personal gain.
And why not? They set the rules, don't they?
I guess our low-life Rep up here on the North SHore - Tierney, must have consulted with Feinstein to employ Sargent Schultz defense "I know nothing".
