Cronyism is alive and well, but you won't see this in the mainstream media. Feinstein and her husband will make millions of dollars as his firm has been selected as the ONLY real estate firm to win the bid. I'm sure the left is fine with this, but just mention Haliburton and they go ape.

United States Postal Service (USPS) hired the world’s largest commercial real estate firm, CB Richard Ellis Group (CBRE), to sell the properties. Richard Blum is chairman of the board at CBRE. U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) is Richard Blum’s wife.


Most of the citizens served by those four thousand post offices soon to be for sale think Dianne Feinstein’s wifely relationship to CBRE’s Chairman Blum represents a conflict of interest. Such thinking is certain concerning California’s post offices and a strongly held belief among La Jollans about to lose their beloved building to a lifelong politician helping her husband.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein caught in conflict of interest or just helping the hubby? - San Diego Conservative | Examiner.com

Yep. I've noticed that too.

And note, folks, that this is all prime real estate that will bring in huge $$ in commission for him.

Do not forget either: She can carry a gun and she doesn't want you too either.

Typical liberal, a hypocritical liar. Let us see how much of this money she makes she gives to the poor. Oh wait, she will just tax us more, while she enjoys every tax loophole under the sun.

I guess you didn't hear about their modification.....they are good to go again.


Congress Acts Quickly to Kill Transparency For Their Own Shady Insider Trading

What could make the House pass something in 30 seconds that the Senate also passed? What would motivate them to put aside their alleged “differences” and act in the best interest of the people? The answer is when they are not acting in the best interest of the people, but rather, in their own best interests.

4/11/2013 Introduced in Senate
4/11/2013 Passed/agreed to in Senate: Introduced in the Senate, read twice, considered, read the third time, and passed without amendment by Unanimous Consent.
4/12/2013 Passed/agreed to in House: On passage Passed without objection.
4/12/2013 Presented to President.

On Tuesday the 15th, the President signed the legislation.

The Sunlight Foundation notes that the amendment passed with unanimous consent, though many members had gone home already.
