    EXCLUSIVE: Senator's husband's firm cashes in on crisis - Washington Times

    On the day the new Congress convened this year, Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband's real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms.

    Mrs. Feinstein's intervention on behalf of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was unusual: the California Democrat isn't a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs with jurisdiction over FDIC; and the agency is supposed to operate from money it raises from bank-paid insurance payments - not direct federal dollars.

    Thats Mrs Fienstien as in wife of Blum, as in making billions of dollars on trade with China. Mrs Blum or Diane Fienstien makes her husbands company rich by using her position.

    Yep, the party of corruption is gone.

    searching blum and china produces a mind numbing amount of results.

    According to Sealybobo, this is okay. She's not republican. Since it's a democrat, it's okay for them to generate more wealth at the expense of American people. They could always blame conservatives for this one saying they are taking from the poor and giving it to the rich.

    As for gay marriage, why aren't the gay marriage advocates calling for gay marriages in Iran? We should have Iranians accept gay marriage. If they don't accept, are they arrogant?
