Glad to see Representative John Murtha is so generous with our money when rewarding the contributors to his campaign.
Murtha's Defense Earmarks Draw Questions
As head of a powerful Defense committee, Murtha controls hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, reports CBS News investigative correspondent
Sharyl Attkisson. And he's not shy about directing money to those who give generously to his election campaigns.
Murtha wants $8 million for Argon ST, a defense contractor whose CEO gave Murtha the maximum allowed by law - $2,400 by an individual. He's directing
a $5 million earmark toward Advanced Acoustic Concepts, which also gave the max - $5,000 for a political action committee - to his campaign. In all,
10 recent Murtha donors are slated to receive $31 million in Murtha earmarks for 2010.
